Yes,Zimerman's performance is glorious in 2nd concerto.I could only compared it with Ashkenazy's (with David Zinman/London Symphony Orch.)performance. Zimerman is really better than Ashkenazy. But in 1st concerto; Maurizio Pollini's (with Paul Kletzki/Philharmonia Orch.)performance is quite better than Zimerman's. In general very stylish performance of Zimerman.
