Conductor Guy Braunstein
Piano Denis Kozhukhin
Prokofiev Concerto No.2 in G minor for Piano and Orchestra, Op.16*
Strauss, R. Also sprach Zarathustra (Thus Spake Zarathustra), TrV 176, Op.30*
Prokofiev’s Concerto No.2 is a true heart racer spiked with folksy tunes and lightning rushes up and down the piano keys. No wonder it remains one of the most technically formidable piano concertos in the standard repertoire. For dramatic punch, it’s hard to beat Zarathustra’s thrilling, introductory, brass-fuelled Sunrise fanfare. Elvis Presley used this famous piece as a prelude to his concerts. Its inclusion in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey has made it one of the most instantly recognisable pieces.
