The Second Piano Concerto, presented here in its original version, was long known only in the ‘Ziloti edition’ of 1897 which drastically abbreviated the work, notably its most original feature, the central Andante calling for three soloists. Both the concerto and the piano pieces that accompany it here illustrate the richness of Tchaikovsky’s melodic inspiration, whether it draws on Russian or Ukrainian folk music or was simply thought up by the composer himself.
