Karajan and Weissenberg perform Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov

“If anyone can follow me, then it is Alexis Weissenberg” – Vladimir Horowitz is reported to have once said. Herbert von Karajan also had a high opinion of the Bulgarian pianist whose full sound approached his own aesthetic. Together, they realised many joint projects, including this recording of Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s First Piano Concerto and Sergei Rachmaninov’s Second Piano Concerto.
