Notes & Reviews:

With this disc, Demidenko completes his cycle of the Prokofiev Concertos with the London Philharmonic. The First Concerto launched the youthful composer's career - he wrote it for his graduation concert - and its youthful high spirits and virtuosity make it an instant crowd-pleaser.

'Dazzlingly virtuosic accounts of the youthful D flat, the left hand and the brilliant G major. Outstanding accompaniments ... put these performances in the class of the celebrated Ashkenazy/Previn set.' (The Sunday Times)

'A perfect follow-on from Concertos 2 & 3 by the same team, and another feather in Hyperion's cap' (Hi-Fi News)
