All the right notes...

Still no Schubert, so let's move onto the next choice.

On Christmas day 1971 at the age of 10 I laughed along with literally half the nation at Eric Morecombe's rendition of Grieg's piano concerto with a game Mr Andrew Preview (Andre Previn) and the LSO. The concerto was the first piano concerto ever recorded and is probably the most famous.

Unlike Eric, Murray Perhaia managed all the right notes in the right order in his live recording in 1987 with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Colin Davies (Sony Classical SK44899) - £4.07 from Amazon.
