Here's a rare recording I recently found in its entirety on YouTube - Cortot playing Beethoven's first piano Concerto! I feel this concerto is not heard as often as the others but it's quite wonderful and he does some interesting things with it:



Enjoy!

Go for it! I haven't heard this Arensky concerto before, it sounds kinda Chopinesque in places I think?
