Re: Tchaikovsky Piano No 1

(I don't know anything about vinyl editions, but I can recommend some excellent performances). There are probably 200 different readings currently in print, and I have probably heard no more than 1/4 of them. I'll confine my recommendations to recordings with good or better than good sound quality, but there are tons of historical recordings if you don't mind antique sound.

Argerich, Kondrashin (Phillips)
Argerich, Dutoit (DG)
Richter, Karajan (DG)
Gilels, Mehta (Sony)
Graffman, Szell (Sony)
Kissin, Karajan (DG)
