Prokofiev - Piano Concertos 1&2


Sorel Classics Releases Recording of Prokofiev's Piano Concertos 1 and 2, Featuring Pianist Anna Shelest

Sorel Classics has released a new recording of Sergei Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No.1, in D flat, Op.10 and Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor, Op. 16 (SC CD006), performed by pianist Anna Shelest, with the Janacek Philharmonic Orchestra, Niels Muus, conductor.

Sergei Prokofiev began composing his Piano Concerto No. 1 in D-flat major, Op. 10, in 1911 and finished it in 1912. A one-movement concerto, it is the shortest of his five complete piano concertos, lasting only around a quarter of an hour.

Sergei Prokofiev began work on his Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor, Op. 16, in 1912 and completed it in 1913. But this concerto was lost; the score was apparently destroyed in a fire following the Russian Revolution. Prokofiev reconstructed the work in 1923, and dedicated it to the memory of Maximilian Schmidthof, a friend of the composer's at the St. Petersburg Conservatory.

Hailed by The New York Times as a pianist of "a fiery sensibility and warm touch", Anna Shelest is an international award-winning pianist who has thrilled the audiences throughout the world. Her recent engagements include debuts at Alice Tully Hall in New York City, Stern Auditorium at Carnegie Hall in New York City, The Kennedy Center in Washington DC, and the Wiener Konzerthaus in Austria. She has

As an international recitalist, she has also performed at the Great Hall of Moscow Conservatory and Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City, and in Canada, France, Japan, Netherlands, Ukraine, South Africa and the United States. Her chamber music collaborations include performances with the Amernet String Quartet, Cincinnati ARC Ensemble, and musicians from the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra. The Prokofiev Piano Concertos 1 and 2 CD is distributed by Naxos Music Library, Believe Digital and Albany, and is available in many online and retail stores.
