My first classical LP

I received this (Van Cliburn playing the Grieg and Liszt 1 piano concertos with Ormandy conducting, on RCA) as a birthday present right after it was released - I think it would have been 1969 or 1970. My older brother was a Cliburn fan and gave it to me, I think, knowing about my growing interest in classical music. I came to love both concertos, and played the heck out of it on a piece of crap stereo, so I discarded the LP somewhere down the line. I found a sealed copy on eBay so said, gotta have it! We'll see what memories come back.....

This record was made about the time when Ormandy was returning to RCA after a long stint at Columbia, and my copy (then) was packaged with some Ormandy-led excerpts from old recordings, including a Wagner aria with Melchior, a revelation to these ears.
