    Default Scriabin- Piano Concerto op. 20 [Garrick Ohlsson]

    Just found this on YT...



    I think the orig Czech. LP was released in 1987; and re-released on CD in 1996. It's rare and hard to get ahold of:

    I don't think I own any version of this PC, so you guys tell me how the above Ohlsson performance compares to others.

    Going thru my hard-drives ... I do in fact have several versions --all from ripped CDs---of the Scriabin PC:
    Boulez/CSO (DG, 1999)
    Ashkenazy,Maazel/LPO (Decca, 1971)
    Demidenko/BBC (Hyperion, 1993)
    Pontinen/Stockholm Phil (BIS, 1990)

    Going thru the above list, I still prefer the Garrick Ohlsson.

    Demidenko/BBC (Hyperion, 1993)

    I don't know what else compares as I think it's the only one I have

    Where have I been? I didn't even realize Scriabin wrote a piano concerto. I'm in love with the sonatas. Can't wait to hear this concerto when I can find an available copy.

    And from Scriabin, you can move onto other lesser-known PCs...




    BTW: Don't wait to get ahold of copy to listen to the PC. The YouTube version has good sound, and is one of the best performances I've heard.
