If you've been worn out on this concerto for a long time, give this recording a listen. It's very original and energetic. In the fast sections she tends toward the leading edge of the beat and just jerks the orchestra around with tempo changes. The first part of the second movement is purposely out of tune in a very gypsy sounding way with a sul ponticello tone. Isn't he like old enough to be her great-grandfather? That's disgusting. Way to go Andre!
