I was listening to Classic FM a while back and they played Grieg's Piano Concerto in A minor, pianist Thibaudet, conductor Gergiev, Rotterdam Philharmonic.

I vaguely recall them saying something about Thibaudet's unique style/interpretation of the work. I'm not that familiar with the piece, or with classical musicians in general, so what's he done that makes it different/better than other recordings?

I'm not aware of anything special about it. The Penguin guide doesn't even bother listing it any more -- the competition in the Grieg is pretty fierce and the there are many recordings that they must consider far better. It's not a work that I spend a lot of time worrying about. Almost any good pianist and conductor can do it justice.
