Matsuev at his best!,
This review is from: Shostakovich: Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 2 (Matsuev/Mariinsky Orchestra/Gergiev) (Audio CD)
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!
