STRAVINSKY The Firebird (1919) PROKOFIEV Piano Concerto No. 2 RACHMANINOV The Rock SCRIABIN Le poeme de l'extase A barnstorming programme of Russian masterworks, forged from the burning embers of the Romantic period by four composers who for the most part couldn't stand the sight of each other. Prokofiev confirms his status as the 'bad boy' of Russian music with a pianistic whirlwind of super-heated virtuosity, here performed by the sensational winner of the 2011 International Tchaikovsky Competition.
