2.0 out of 5 stars Poor recording
It sound like someone recorded this on the cheapest recording equipment available, the music is as anticipated, knowing much of the work of Shostakovich. Just a poor recording

5.0 out of 5 stars Matsuev steals the show, 28 Mar. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Denis Matsuev is excellent in all 3 works. I would go so far as to say that he gives the best performance on CD that I have heard of any pianist in these concertos, and I have heard Kissin, Argerich and many others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Matsuev at his best!, 9 Feb. 2012
Denis Matsuev is perfectly matched with the music of Shostakovich. At once romantic, compelling, exciting, thrilling (the list goes on). I particularly love the second movement of the Second Piano Concerto. It is deeply moving and beautifully executed. The Mariinsky orchestra are swift becoming my favourite, their playing is controlled, technically astounding and quite beautiful. A real Russian experience!

5.0 out of 5 stars Powerful, poignant playing by one of the best Russian pianists of this day., 9 Feb. 2012
Denis Matsuev is extraordinary. His playing on this recording is quite exquisite and this recording really highlights his technical prowess as well as his musicality. The Mariinsky never fail to impress. This is a truly exciting recording and the works compliment each other perfectly.
