Sa Chen plays Chopin

Together with Lang Lang and Yundi Li, Sa Chen (born 1979) is considered as one of today’s most important Chinese pianists and a veritable international sensation. Here we can hear her in the second movement of Chopin´s first Piano Concerto in E minor Op. 11 with the Gulbenkian Orchestra, Lisbon conducted by Lawrence Foster. Read more >>

Problem.  What do you mean by original?  Rachmaninoff was both a superb and flamboyant pianist -- and a passably good composer.  It's highly unlikely that he played any cadenza exactly the same way twice...

First edition had the ossia cadenza (big chords one), people complained about its difficulty so he revised it to the better known toccata-like version.

Actually the tocatta version came around because there wasn't enough time for him to record the whole concerto so he decided to make a shorter cadenza and make a ton of cuts throughout he piece.  

And whoevers complaining about how hard the cadenza is then they need to learn another piece cause there's spots WAY harder than that.

Although I will say by the time you finish the cadenza like 60% of your energy is gone it really depletes you.

And the ossia is the better known candenza cause everyone plays that one.  And rightfully so cause it's a better cadenza lol
