Primarily Piano | January 11

This edition of Primarily Piano features 2 concerto recordings -- one with a twist.  First, Nelson Freire plays one of the all-time favorites: Edvard Grieg's a minor Piano Concerto.  Then, it's Anne-Marie McDermott with her new recording of Mozart's 14th with the Calder Quartet accompanying, standing in for the orchestra role as was done in days gone by.  And from the WKAR vinyl archives, we'll share a rare recording by Sergei Prokofiev playing his own music.

Grieg/Piano Concerto/Freire, Munich, Kempe/CBS

Prokofiev/Suggestion Diabolique/Prokofiev/Angel
