Two of the most popular of all Russian piano concertos – Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 3 and Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No. 1 – paired on a single CD by the exciting young Uzbekistani pianist Behzod Abduraimov. For today’s generation Abduraimov’s thunderously resplendent performance sets a new benchmark, accompanied with brilliance and elegance by the Slovakian conductor Juarj Valcuha – principal conductor of the RAI Turin orchestra.
Prokofiev 3 was the piece with which Behzod Abduraimov burst onto the scene in a victorious performance at the London international Piano Competition.
