Prokofiev, Bartok: Piano Concertos / Lang Lang
Label: SONY CLASSICAL
Bartók: Piano Concerto No. 2, BB 101, Sz. 95 Prokofiev: Piano Concerto No. 3 in C major, Op. 26
Lang Lang's first concerto album on the Sony label unites the world’s greatest International music stars: Lang Lang, Sir Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra. This highly awaited collaboration resulted in a recording which will mark one of this year's most important core classical releases in the music industry. Recorded at Berlin's Philharmonie, the album presents two mile stones of the 20th century piano literature: Prokofiev’s explosive Piano Concerto No. 3, (one of the great show stoppers in the concert literature), and the Bartók Concerto Nr. 2, probably the most technically challenging piece ever written for piano and orchestra.
