About

Prokofiev’s two most popular piano concertos (he wrote five) are here performed by Nikolai Demidenko and the London Philharmonic Orchestra under Alexander Lazarev. These vibrant recordings from 1995 bristle with youthful virtuosity from composer and soloist alike.

Choc du Monde de la Musique, France

A commanding artist whose dazzling technique and virtuosity are never hidden from view’ - Gramophone

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’ - BBC Music Magazine

Magnificent!’ - Hi-Fi News

What is most striking about Demidenko’s performance is not so much his effortless command of the cascading torrents of notes as his ability to hold in perspective the plethora of detail while conveying a marvellous sense of lyrical sweep’ - Soundscapes, Australia
