Grieg: Piano Concerto in A minor, O. 6 - 2. Adagio by Stephen Kovacevich & BBC Symphony Orchestra & Sir Colin Davis. The BBC was perhaps more naturally recorded, but the high and low frequencies were quite dynamic and the piano and orchestra were well placed, neither out-miked over the other. The three compositions were well-recorded and held up over time, even with different players, intelligently and sonically. The liner notes are basic and nothing to write home about.
