This is both necessary and sufficient

This remastered recording (Gieseking, Rother) from 1944/45 which I encountered today is the best recording of the Concerto I’ve ever heard. It’s amazing how music composed so long ago can resonate so well in such a different and difficult period, and that the tension in the recording can be still discerned and appreciated by the listener today.
