Overview

For his third EMI Classics release, piano legend Evgeny Kissin has turned to repertoire from his native Russia, Sergei Prokofiev’s Piano Concertos Nos. 2 & 3. The performances were recorded live at the Royal Festival Hall in January 2008 with Vladimir Ashkenazy conducting the Philharmonia Orchestra.

This is Kissin’s first recording of Prokofiev’s Concerto No. 2, and the collaboration here with Vladimir Ashkenazy is an inspired choice — in addition to his renown as a conductor, fellow- Russian-born Ashkenazy is one of the finest pianists of his generation and a champion of the Russian piano repertoire. These two great artists inspire each other to the heights of artistry, and these recordings prove it! From the Label

Editorial Reviews

Gramophone - David Fanning
A stunning demonstration of pianistic prowess. Kissin is so ideally wired up from brain to fingers that he always seems to have extra nanoseconds in which to articulate and add colour and rhetorical accent.
