Piano Concertos By Prokofiev & Khachaturian
Format: Hybrid SACD
Arghamanyan; Berlin Radio Symphony Orchestra; Altinoglu
Composed by: Prokofiev; Khachaturian
Nareh Arghamanyan is not only one of the most technically resourceful pianists of today’s generation, but her interpretations, her rich, colorful tone, combined with an exceptional storytelling gift also enable her to present something remarkably unique and precious. Sergei Prokofiev’s intricate, complex Piano Concerto No. 3 is a work that calls for the utmost virtuosity, traits equal to the level of gregariousness necessary for a successful traversal of Aram Khachaturian’s concerto, with its spicy harmonies and colorful orchestration. This Pentatone release finds the pianist in the company of Berlin Radio Symphony, conducted by Alain Altinoglu.
