Two complete Living Stereo LPs on a single disc!
Van Cliburn's history-making gold medal at the first Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow at the height of the cold war helped his Tchaikovsky Concerto No. 1 to become classical music's first platinum record. Cliburn is joined on this classic Living Stereo recording by Kiril Kondrashin and the RCA - Victor Orchestra.

When remastering the original recordings, John Newton and his engineering team used only three of the available six channels on this SACD disc because that was the vision of the original producers.

Piano Concerto No. 1, Op. 23 in B-Flat Minor
Allegro non troppo e molto maestoso
Andantino simplice
Allegro con fuoco
Sergei Rachmaninoff

While SACD my weakest link, as I cant use the tweaked outboard D/A. Sounds great.

Astounding! Clibrun is Magnificent!

No one performs the music on this Hybrid SACD better than the master, Cliburn himself. And for these performances nothing sounds better than this SACD release, not even the original LP. When I first bought it I didn't have an SACD player, so don't let that stop you. It sounds really good, even on the Red Book (CD) layer. A must-buy for the music library of any Classical enthusiast. I love it!
