Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra / Vasily Petrenko / Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 3

“Despite his youth, [Denis Kozhukhin] was clearly the equal of the composer’s many demands… he played with blissful fluidity and a fine sense of drama, bouncing off his stool as he fired through rapid rattle phrases and floating over the keys in a style both musically expressive and technically authoritative.”

Liverpool Echo, March 2013

“Denis Kozhukhin’s fingers did a bit of dancing through the lyric and motoric delights of Prokoviev’s Third Piano Concerto. Now this really is all about articulation and Kozhukhin and Petrenko were telepathically like-minded about the piece, luxuriating in its beauty (how ravishing the Gavotte and its variations are in the middle movement) but equally reveling in the dizzying incandescence of the finale’s final pages. Kozhukhin returned with more ravishment, albeit quieter and more reflective, in his encore – an exquisite Gluck arrangement with more than a touch of Bach in the mix.”

Edward Seckerson, March 2013
