Product Description

Product Description

'Dynamite, explosive and volatile, phenomenal... performance of such rare quality' these are just some of the superlatives used to describe Denis Kozhukhin s Prokofiev interpretations. His is a name to watch out for. The debut recording from a young Russian pianist who wowed the public and critics with his recent Prokofiev piano concerto cycle with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, he embarks upon a recital tour to Japan in January, playing repertoire that includes the complete Prokofiev piano sonatas. In May 2013 Denis Kozhukhin will perform Sonatas 6 8 at the South Bank Centre s The Rest is Noise festival. He won the coveted first prize at the prestigious Queen Elisabeth Competition in Belgium in 2010 and is now in demand with many leading orchestras. 'This was remarkable; a performance of such rare quality it is difficult to light on vocabulary that might define the experience. There could be some mileage in recounting the audience s stunned reaction as Kozhukhin wrestled with and overcame passage after furious passage, gathering tension as he went by virtue of the sheer physical strain required to realise the notes Prokofiev put on the page.' The Scotsman [Piano Concerto no.2] 'The performance was dynamite: explosive and volatile, with phenomenal playing from Kozhukhin, but all within a lucidly defined context and structure.' Herald, Scotland

5.0 out of 5 stars teeming, big, profound 18 May 2013
By schumann_bg TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Denis Kozhukhin's disc is an event. It presents Prokofiev's three War sonatas with such breadth, power, tenderness, playfulness even, that they sound like a complete musical statement about life - which they are, of course, but Kozhukhin makes this incontestable. He is given a big sound by Onyx which very well captures his tone live. The power which is the keynote of his playing never turns into a bulldozing effect, and is often reined in so that it is all the more effective when he is at full strength - the last movement of the 7th Sonata, for instance, is not simply bashed out but has a continuous note of humanity underpinning its driven rhythm. The slight blur he gives to its insistent motif amplifies a sense of despair, perhaps, that is in the music, by softening its glare, making it less steely, bringing out the soul in the writing. Slow movements are full of mystery and strangeness. Kozhukhin is a fantastic player and his interview at last week's London recital made it clear what a sensitive and deeply-felt response he has to music, while showing a certain gentleness guiding those hands which can unleash such power. (He was also fantastic in Shostakovich and Messiaen.) Russian pianists have always been outstanding, and with Kozhukhin the trend is surely set to continue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Prokofiev "The War Sonatas"!!! 26 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this Prokofiev CD after hearing very favourable feedback of pianist Denis Kozhukhin's performances of Prokofiev's piano concertos in Glasgow over the past two years. I wasn't able to make those performances myself but at least I have the consolation of listening to Denis's amazing playing of Prokofiev's Piano Sonatas 6,7 and 8. All three sonatas are know as the "War Sonatas" and are very affecting to listen to. Denis's playing is very striking and he gets powerful tones from his piano in all three sonatas. My favourite is Piano Sonata No.7, particulrly its very moving second movement, the Andante caloroso, but No.8 stands out for me as well with its poignant opening and reflective second movements. Of course it is Denis Kozhukhin's interpretation of these piano sonatas that make them sound so special.
