Tchaikovsky // Piano Concerto No. 1 in B-flat Minor Listen Now

Revered pianist Gabriela Montero returns for Tchaikovsky’s virtusotic Piano Concerto No. 1. “[She] has everything: crackling rhythmic brio, subtle shadings, steely power… and, best of all, unsentimental expressivity” (The New York Times). Bartók combines his love of folk music with traditional classical forms and paints a picture with his Concerto for Orchestra, an innovative piece that pops with vivid colors.
