Rudepoema from Concertgebouw

Radio Netherlands Worldwide recently broadcast a concert from the Concertgebouw that featured Richard Rijnvos's orchestration of Rudepoema, and you can listen (until June 4) to the concert online. Though Villa-Lobos made his own orchestration of the famously complex and difficult piano piece, Rijnvos brings out some really interesting orchestral sounds. However, as Prof. Tarasti said:
When one compares the piano version of Rudepoema to the orchestral arrangement made by the composer himself, one can only be amazed at how 'orchestral' the piano work already is.
