Gratuitous Musickal Posting (TM)

At the moment the local classickal station is playing Beethoven's 1st Piano Concerto in C. The performance is by Olli Mustonen (piano) with the
Tapiola Sinfonietta.

Not only is this the third time in three days they've played this recording, I swear it contains a positive wrong note in the first movement - the pianist finishes off a turn half a step down from where he should. I can't believe that a professional recording would let something like this slide accidentally, so I assume it is done deliberately.

To my tropically heated brain, both the over-repetition in general and that conspiciously flat note in particular are very jarring.
