Rossen Milanov, conductor
John Lill, piano

Tchaikovsky - Piano Concerto No. 1
Stravinsky - Petrouchka (1947)
"Worthless," declared the composer's friends. "Impossible to play." But Tchaikovsky refused to change a note of what became history's most romantic and popular piano concerto. John Lill plays Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto. And Rossen Milanov leads music by another Russian master – Stravinsky's colorful music for the ballet "Petrushka".
