His recording of Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto with Kondrashin still remains my "go to" disc for this work.

RIP Van.

I greatly enjoyed his performances, especially of the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto. I saw him at Tanglewood in the 1960's performing Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto and remember that the entire audience was mesmerized by his very lyrical playing.
