Notes & Reviews:

Prokofiev's five piano concertos are among the composer's most popular works. These vibrant recordings of the Piano Concertos Nos.2 & 3, performed by soloist Nikolai Demidenko and the London Philharmonic Orchestra under Alexander Lazarev, bristle with youthful virtuosity from composer and soloist alike. Originally released in 1995, this gem from the Hyperion back catalog is now available at mid-price.

Gramophone Magazine
A commanding artist whose dazzling technique and virtuosity are never hidden from view.

BBC Music Magazine
Demidenko is breathtaking in his virtuosity. The orchestra is with him all the way and so is the Hyperion production team who have, as usual, created the perfect sonic setting.
