Zoltan Kocsis plays Beethoven, Brahms, Debussy and Bartok

Here's a recording of a recital he gave when he was 18, just after he won the Beethoven Competition of Hungarian Radio.  If I'd heard it I'd probably have given up.  Entirely mature and youthful at the same time.  Listening to him playing Beethoven is like falling in love with him for the first time all over again.
