Royal Flemish Philharmonic / Edo de Waart / Brahms Piano Concerto No.2

“The jury (of the Queen Elisabeth Competition) awarded the highly deserved first prize to Denis Kozhukhin, already a seasoned pianist. This young musician proved his worth with Brahms 2nd piano concerto. To sum the performance up in a few words; it boasted a full sound, virile and intense playing, and clear intentions. Kozhukhin mastered the piece with exceptional composure, and beyond his technically brilliant performance of this titanic concerto, he remained above all a musician. The occasionally harsh tone of his playing was ideally suited to Op.83, and yet he was also capable of beautifully delicate and light playing when required. He brought out the fierce poetry of the piece with a simplicity and authority which augur a great future for this young pianist who is still only 24 years of age.”
