My son recommended this one to me:



Playing is somewhat brittle sounding, but not in a bad way. While this
is mostly a piece about virtuosity, one isn't constantly reminded of it
in this recording. Nice sound and a very complementary orchestra.

Great performance! In particular the slow movements sounded far more interesting than anything than I expected them to be.

Thanks,

many years ago I received a trove of Cziffra CDs, most of which I did not like. This recording is by far the best of the lot, tremendous playing.
