It is a live recording! This recording is a part of the Platinum Collection of the RMS. It is a perfect combination of the great music and the high quality performing mastership. Great performance of the Scharwenka: Piano Concerto No. 1 in B-Flat Minor performed by Seta Tanyel with The Philharmonia Orchestra under Maestro Yuri Simonov. As always RMS is committed to bringing only the best quality music to you.
