Prokofiev : Concertos pour piano n° 1, 3 & 4 / Kun Woo Paik, piano - Orchestre Symphonique de la Radio Nationale de Pologne - Antoni Wit, direction
Top Customer Reviews
Kun Woo Paik brings to these concertos a flamboyancy that perfectly suits the showman side of these concertos. In this he is helped by being possessed of a technique that seems to exult in such challenges. Consequently the technical demands of the concertos are fully met and despatched with verve.
On the other hand Paik has a ready response to the purely lyrical side of these two concertos as well as a well developed sense of musical humour which is so important in any appreciation of Prokofiev's work. This is clearly in evidence in concertos 1 and 3 in particular.
The contribution of the orchestra under Antoni Wit is very accomplished and has the benefit of some of the best recorded sound in these concertos.
I would therefore suggest that this very attractively priced disc offers performances and recording of such a quality as to deserve serious consideration from collectors interested in purchasing these concertos either as an 'only' example or as part of a larger collection with alternative viewpoints to consider. I would also suggest that, with its companion disc of the two remaining concertos, this would make an excellent integral set to consider.
