Gerstein Plays Prokofiev >
Program Notes Archive >
Prokofiev’s penetrating Second Piano Concerto breathlessly
accelerates to its astonishing finale. The “brilliant, perceptive and
stunningly fresh” (New York Times) Kirill Gerstein joins the CSO for
one of the most technically difficult piano concertos ever written. Deeply
influenced by Jean Sibelius, Walton's First Symphony overflows with bombastic
power, sensuous desolation and arrogant swagger.
Pianist Kirill Gerstein will sign CDs in the Grainger
Ballroom following the performance on Saturday, October 26.
