Tchaikovsky’s powerful concerto receives an energetic reading from Barenboim and the uncanny Staatskapelle Berlin, but the true star of this album is Lisa Batiashvili, who treats the mighty work’s languid lines and towering climaxes with moving reverence and transcendental skill. Tchaikovsky’s ecstatic spirit is resurrected in this formidable reading.
