Notes & Reviews:

Exclusive Chandos artist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet tackles Prokofiev's five formidable piano concertos. Mr. Bavouzet's is recognized for his flair for powerful twentieth-century repertoire. Gianandrea Noseda leads the BBC Philharmonic. Prokofiev wrote these works mostly as personal vehicles during his most active period as an astonishingly gifted performing pianist.

Sunday Times, 2nd March 2014
[Bavouzet] dispatches the bravura passages with Tlan, yet captures the yearning nostalgia for the Russian TmigrT's homeland in his haunting, lyrical slow movements. Gianandrea Noseda and the BBC Phillies are ideal partners in this enterprising set, which should win friends for these less familiar works.

Gramophone Magazine, March 2014
Throughout, Bavouzet displays a light touch and laudable levels of physical stamina, with a firm grasp of the very different personalities of each piece. Noseda and the BBC Philharmonic perform like soulmates for the duration, and with superb notes by the Prokofiev scholar David Nice as part of the deal, you can hardly go wrong.
