Leif Ove Andsnes - Beethoven takes you by the hand
There are apparently some pianists who, despite the anniversary, are not devoting them exclusively to Beethoven this year. Anyway, with his Beethoven Journey project, Leif Ove Andsnes has already done his bit, making one of the most beautiful recordings of the piano concertos.

How long would it take for a really good performer to go from scratch to concert ready on a piece like the Tchaikovsky - Piano concerto Bb-minor op.23 (allegro non troppo e molto maestoso movement only) ??????????????

I guess it depends... my teacher played Beethoven`s Emperor with a 3 weeks notice, and i read that Richter mastered Prokofiev`s 7th sonata in 3 days or so...
we mortals require a lot more...which is no problem as long as you enjoy the process.
practice doesnt make perfection. Only perfect practice makes perfection.

What a coincidence you're talking about learning the Tchaikovsky B flat Concerto quickly!

I'm trying to do that myself, right now. Although I am just starting today. Heh. I have no idea of how long it will take, but once I have tried, I will have an idea.
