Editorial Reviews

Product Description

For his second Mariinsky release, the acclaimed Russian pianist Denis Matsuev joins Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra for a program of music
by Shostakovich and Shchedrin. Despite being a prolific symphonist, Shostakovich only wrote two piano concertos. His first, displaying his usual wit and sardonic humor, features a prominent solo trumpet part, which provides dialogue with the piano and an independent voice commenting on the music of the piano and orchestra. The Second Concerto, by contrast, is unusually happy and optimistic in nature. This may be because it was written for his son, who gave the première, and has been described as showing, the composer as though his own youth had returned to him. Rodion Shchedrin has so far composed six piano concertos, each signifying a new phase in his compositional development. His colorful Fifth Concerto is influenced by the music of both Shostakovich and Prokofiev.

Review

***** ''Among the best currently available... superb playing... these performances are exceptional.'' --BBC Music Magazine

''Matsuev remains a dazzling soloist.'' --ClassicsToday.com
