. . . [Piano Concertos]: Colin Davis mostly conducts with clarity of inner part-writing and with good balance of orchestral sound to allow the piano to be properly heard . . . [Piano Concerto no. 1]: [Stephen Kovacevich's] second movement is notable for its lyrical eloquence and his third movement notable for its spirited articulation. The C-Minor Concerto (No. 3) is the outstanding member of this set. Orchestral clarity is magnificent in the opening movement, and Kovacevich enters with great flair, and later becomes suitably quiet. Balance of piano and orchestra is especially fine. The second movement in the remote E-Major key is profoundly and reverently played. Kovacevich displays great clarity of line in the final movement.
