Notes & Reviews:

The version of Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No.2 recorded here by Boris Berezovsky was long known only in the 'Ziloti' Edition of 1897. It drastically abbreviates the work and revises the central Andante to feature a trio of soloists. The piano is joined by a solo violin and cello, played here by violinist Jakub Haufa and cellist Marcel Markowski. In addition to the concerto, the recording also includes several works for solo piano and two transcriptions for cello and piano. Taken as a whole, this collection of works illustrates the amazing richness of Tchaikovsky's melodic inspiration.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
The whole movement is just beautifully played - very delicate, very romantic, with delightful violin and cello solos. In I and III there is very good teamwork. The pianist is strong in I.
