Denis Kozhukhin returns to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra for four performances of Prokofiev Piano Concerto No.2 on 17, 18, 19 and 22 November. The performances, at Chicago’s Symphony Center, are conducted by Emmanuel Krivine.
One concert will be recorded for deferred radio broadcast and streamed subsequently on csosoundsandstories.org.
Kozhukhin previously performed with the CSO in June 2015, when his performance of Ravel’s Piano Concerto for the Left Hand conducted by Ludovic Morlot was praised by the Chicago Tribune:
“His firm tone, incisive attacks and supple sense of line made light of the work’s enormous technical difficulties. Especially in the formidable cadenza that closes the concerto, it was hard to believe he could deliver such commanding sound and spot-on accuracy using only five fingers. With Morlot’s sympathetic partnering, this was another winning performance… Thursday’s audience roared its approval.”
