The two recordings I have are by John Ogden (68 minutes) and by Marc-Andre Hamelin (73 minutes). The huge and exceptionally ambitious concerto needs to be kept going and I think both of these master pianists (well supported by their respective orchestras) do just that, maintaining momentum and interest.

It is a wonderful piece and the first entry of the piano four minutes in is simply amazing! As I recall very few pianists could tackle its demands until Ogden revived it in that historic recording from 1967.
