Evgeny Kissin: Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1

Evgeny Kissin performs Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No.1 in B-flat minor, opus 23, with the Boston Symphony Orchestra, Seiji Ozawa at the podium, at New York's Carnegie Hall in 1995. Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, the Russian composer, composed this piece between November 1874 and February 1875; it was revised a number of times until 1888, which is the version usually performed. (I have written about the history of this piece in a previous post, which also includes a 1932 recording by Arthur Rubinstein.)
