Prokofiev: 10 Pieces From Romeo And Juliet - 10 Pi
Label: STEINWAY & SONS
Sergei Prokofiev’s visceral romanticism is on display in music written for the ballet Romeo and Juliet. The composer’s own arrangement for piano matches his brilliant orchestration. The virtuoso Stanislav Khristenko pairs these works with Prokofiev’s equally vibrant Op. 12 Pieces for Piano. Stanislav Khristenko’s performances have captivated audiences on four continents since his first solo recital at the age of 11 at the Kharkiv Philharmonic Hall in Ukraine. A “poet of piano” (Le Soir, Belgium), Khristenko has been praised for his emotional intensity and charismatic expression. As a concert pianist, Khristenko has received prizes at over 30 international piano competitions, and he has given solo recitals at Carnegie Hall, Vienna Konzerthaus, and Palais de Beaux-Arts in Brussels.
