Info for Prokofiev: Piano Concertos 1 & 3
Prokofiev was just 21 when he first performed his First Piano Concerto in Moscow, on 25 July 1912, with his teacher Nikolay Tcherepnin conducting. That same year, even as he was composing his ferocious Second Piano Concerto, Prokofiev was contemplating composing 'a little pendant, something a little lighter'. The Third Concerto has the kind of grace, economy and balance that one might almost call Classical. Indeed, it has stylistic traits in common with Prokofiev s First Symphony known as the Classical . It has become one of the 20th century s most popular concertos. Vasily Petrenko and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra were awarded Record of the Year by BBC Music Magazine for their recording of Tchaikovsky Symphonies [ONYX4150]. Their next concerts at Philharmonic Hall, Liverpool on May 25 and 26, feature Tchaikovsky's 'The Seasons' and Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No. 3, also played by Simon Trpceski. The RLPO and Petrenko appear at the BBC Proms in an all-Russian programme on August 29th.
