Quasi adagio - Allegretto vivace - Allegro animato. Was soooo disappointed after the opening two piano chords of the first movement I pulled the disk out of the CD player. I may listen to the Totentanz but not the Liszt Concertos. 2 people found this helpful.
Liszt, . Piano Concertos Nos 1 & 2; Totentanz ; etc. – Zimerman, Boston SO; Ozawa. Ozawa and the orchestra are behind the soloist in all this and the deciso element is fully realized. But don't let me imply a lack of finesse; not only do lyrical sections sing with subtlety, the big passages also are shapely. There is plenty of drive in this Concerto. In the A major Zimerman adopts a different approach; he evidently considers it a more poetic piece and the playing style, strong though it is, is to match.

These recordings of Zimerman's performances of Rachmaninov's first two piano concertos with Seiji Ozawa and the Boston Symphony Orchestra from 1997 and 2000 are transcendentally virtuosic and their emotional impact of his performances is unrivaled in passion and precision. But the most amazing thing about Zimerman's performance is its strength and weight. Zimerman had recorded big performances before – his Chopin Ballades are muscular and his Ravel Concerto is monumental – but Zimerman's Rachmaninov is legendary in its scope and scale.
