    Come fanno questi benedetti pianisti a memorizzare decine e decine di migliaia di note diverse, da eseguire per lo più a ritmo vertiginoso, è un mistero inaccessibile per noi poveri profani. Anche solo a sfogliare lo spartito di un concerto come questo si resta sgomenti. Complimenti comunque alla grande Anna Fedorova.

    What makes her great. She doesn't forget that she is a part of the instrument. Most pianists look like statues when playing.

    I have heard many perform both Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff and I do not think I have listened to anyone with a more beautiful interpretation. Anna Fedorova is one of the modern world's most significant pianists.


    i rememeber this clsssical music from a LP demo disk that my dad had with a stereo that he used to have that had a record player built in to it i think this was the first time i had ever heard any kind of classical music in my life

    Very good! I can hear so many details compared to other interpretations. At 15:22 the violonist looks as if she is thinking: "O dear, I farted. Hope no one noticed...." :)

    Восхитительно, потрясающе красиво, напевно, мелодично, изящно, душевно. Очень глубоко и проникновенно выражен характер каждой фразы произведения. Очень ярко, чувственно, утончённо отражены различия характеров каждого фрагмента, наиболее отчетливо передана их уникальность. Это лучшее исполнение фортепианного концерта № 1 П. И. Чайковского .
