Argerich and Ozawa, they both are quite vigorous for their ages. Was it recorded in 2018?

The DVD, which I purchased after having watched this performance on YouTube, states that the "Choral Fantasy" was recorded at Ozawa's birthday celebration on September 1, 2015.

Yes, it's quite a recent recording.

You sir and I, as classic-music listeners, are quite a minority here.

Nice party at Phranky's, and some dancing happening....this always gets people moving, and of course when the ladies and gents get some wine in them.
