Tchaikovsky:  Piano Concerto No. 1

"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. The New Year begins as young Russian keyboard titan Ilya Rashkovskiy plays Tchaikovsky’s immortal First Piano Concerto. Also, the moving Symphony No. 1 by Grammy Award-winning composer, John Corigliano, a memorial inspired by the AIDS Quilt to those loved and lost.
