Pianist Anna Shelest was born in Kharkiv, Ukraine. A multi-award winning artist, she won her first competition when she was only eleven. She has since gone on to win many more. Recorded in the Czech Republic in 2014, this release features Prokofiev's Piano Concertos Nos 1 and 2. These works were written early in his career, and feature the virtuosic and wildly dissonant style which caused his first leap into fame.

The Prokofiev: Piano Concerto No 1 in D-flat major, Op 10 (16:47) from Prokofiev: Piano Concertos 1 & 2 by Anna Shelest, piano; Janáček Philharmonic Orchestra / Niels Muus on Sorel Classics is the WFMT: Chicago - New Release Of the Day for Thursday June 30
