Reviews

March 5th, 2018

Denis Kozhukhin @ Wigmore Hall, London

“His tour de force, though, was an utterly mesmerising account of Gershwin’s arrangement of his own Rhapsody in Blue for solo piano. The piece requires the touch of a master, as everything that is in the full version is there, and the pianist needs to bring out the solo piano part as well as supply the crossrhythms of the orchestra with just two hands, and Kozhukhin achieved it summa cum laude, taking some portions at breakneck speed with stunning accuracy and attack – at one point, even lifting himself off the piano stool. It was perhaps as well that his encore – a gentle and sensitive account of Grieg’s Til våren allowed the audience to get their breaths.”
