Eugene Istomin is a legendary pianist! Two recordings by one of America's greatest musicians with Gerard Schwarz conducting the Seattle Symphony.
Istomin and Schwarz have performed these immortal concertos many times, and insisted on recording them in long, complete takes in order to capture the live experience. "Prof." Johnson's HDCD wizardry pays large dividends in natural, high-resolution string textures and huge, three-dimensional soundstage.
