KHCD-2012-027DL (STEREO LP/Reel Tape Master) - Beethoven: Concerto No. 5 in E-flat for Piano and Orchestra, Op. 73 - Yuri Boukoff, pianist - L'Orchestre des Concerts Colonnes/Pierre Dervaux (LP); Tchaikovsky: Concerto No. 1 in B-flat minor for Piano and Orchestra, Op. 23 - Peter Katin, pianist - New Symphony Orchestra of London/Edric Cundell (Reel Tape) - Exceptional performances in both concerti; surprising discipline and warmth from the French orchestra, with some truly distinctive woodwind playing (especially the bassoons), beautifully burnished strings, and the French horns control the vibrato admirably. Yuri Boukoff plays with dignity and forthrightness, in a recording originally taped by Grand Award/Command. The Tchaikovsky is a crackerjack recording, with all concerned putting in a detailed, well-paced showing, from an Richmond 7½ ips reel tape.
