Liu was superb, but Cho is in that rarefied "once-in-a-lifetime" category. He might already have cracked my personal all-time top five.
surpass his contest performance, which IMHO surpasses all others I've heard.
I'm not a big fan of Chopin's First Concerto.... But Cho's performance brings out some delicate phrases that are just an afterthought with most pianists. It's the only performance of this work that hold my attention.
I think his best performance was the one he performed with NHK. Vladimir Fedoseyev conductor. The secondary melody in the final movement took on a personality that IMO is something really special. His melodic line is as good as it gets. I do not recall encountering a better performance of this concerto.
Performance starts at 6:45 of the video clip. (Has intro in Japanese prior to that.)
