Rach 3, I didn't track down the one you mentioned on Amazon, but can you tell me what label the Double Concerto is on, and does it feature Gidon Kremer as violinist? And is Giedrė Dirvanauskaitė the cellist.

I have given some thought to the complete concerto recordings of Kremer on DGG. Do you have this - or anyone else on CMG? I'd like to know what you think of it.

When she started to play, Mr. Steinway came down and personally
rubbed his name off the piano. [Speaking about pianist &*$#@+#]

Here 'tis :
Different artists.
The only Kremer cd I have is the Schumann Sonatas with Argerich.
Not sure, but in the Beethoven VC I think he may play the Schnittke cadenza ; ugh.
