The steely brilliance of Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 2 comes alive with Honens Competition-winner Luca Buratto. Prokofiev wrote four of his five piano concertos for his own hefty virtuosity. The Second left one critic “frozen with fright, hair standing on end.”
Rachmaninoff, another stunning pianist, kept his foot firmly in the Romantic 19th century, filling his music with sweeping melodies, lush orchestration, and ever-present emotion.
