From the great booming chords that sweep up the keyboard at the opening to the furious double octaves that come crashing down at the close, Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No 1 delivers an enthralling experience from start to finish. In between, Tchaikovsky offers lashings of his trademark tunefulness and lush orchestration. Taking on this colossus is renowned Macedonian pianist Simon Trpčeski.
