Known Details:
nally, this Bach concerto No. 5 was to be included with the Mozart piano concerto No. 25 for the 1958 RCA Mozart/Bach Concerto disk, but the Bach concerto was deleted by André (for the whole story, see: 1958 RCA Mozart Concerto). However, this Bach recording was included on a special "Mostly Bach" Marathon V fund raising event for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in 1980.

Oddly enough, an RCA Victor/BMG CD BVCC-38397 (Japan) was released in on November 22, 2006 that did include both the Mozart piano concerto No. 25 and the Bach piano concerto No. 5 as had been planned for so many years previously. Of all the André Tchaikowsky recordings, this one is readily available for purchase. (See: http://www.cdjapan.co.jp/detailview.html?KEY=BVCC-38397)

The inside photograph of the RCA Victor/BMG CD BVCC-38397 reissue borrowed the photograph from the cover of the very first RCA recording from 1957 (see: 1957 RCA Ravel/Prokofiev).

This recording of the Bach No. 5 piano concerto was captured in a single take at the recording session.
