4.0 out of 5 stars Like about Lang Lang, 17 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Prokofiev: Piano Concerto No. 3 - Bartók: Piano Concerto No. 2 (MP3 Download)
Lang Lang's approach to this complex piece by Prokofiev takes on an attacking mode, it is very well executed and delivers a great soundscape across the whole work and there is next to nothing to be critical of, so why then do I prefer the Michel Beroff / Kurt Masur version from 1988? well I think there is greater "Feeling" in the Beroff version, he seems to be inside the piece rather than
this "performance" of it by Lang Lang...

I agree. I find myself alternating between those two versions. The older recording seems to have more orchestral emphasis and is more emotive. You can also hear the odd slip-up or stumble which gives it added charm in my opinion. The Lang Lang/Rattle version sounds incredible. Its exciting music. Precise and electric. The quality of the recording is excellent. I think it may just depend on the mood I'm in. A lot of reviewers favour the M Argerich recording. Its too fast for me and, perhaps owing to the manic tempo and the age of the recording, the orchestral details seem subdued.
