Since 1894, Tchaikovsky‘s Piano Concerto No. 1 has been published and performed in a version containing numerous unauthorized editorial alterations that were added posthumously. This is the first recording using the new scholarly edition by the Tchaikovsky Archive and Museum in Moscow of the 1879 version of the Piano Concerto - the version that was approved and conducted by Tchaikovsky until his last public appearance in 1893.
