Review By Classic CD,

"one of the most compelling accounts I have ever heard [Second Piano Concerto]"

Review By Penguin Guide,January 2009

This Naxos coupling can be strongly recommended on all counts, quite irrespective of cost, Bernd Glemser and the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra give an outstanding account of Tchaikovsky’s underrated G major Concerto, flamboyant and poetic turns. The unnamed orchestra principal cellist introduces the Andante gently and tenderly and his two string colleagues join him with equal sensitivity. The finale has plenty of sparkle and gusto and the whole account is very enjoyable indeed.
