#81 The Smell of Ball

Orchestra starts with pretending  a serious piece of music is coming. But the piano flows in feebly and soon there's a ball in a big ballroom with all the candelabras and stairways and people floating up and down.

Blechacz plays nobly, with an aristocratic tone. RCGO fits well to both position of full blood orchestra and chamber playing.

Composer: Frédérick Chopin
Work: Piano Concerto No 1, III. Rondo: Vivace
Recording: Rafał Blechacz, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Jerzy Semkow
