“Russian pianist Denis Kozhukhin (familiar from the Symphony’s 2013 Rachmaninov Festival) was the soloist on Piano Concerto No. 3. From the spare chill elegance of the first movement’s opening to the keyboard cascades that followed, Kozhukhin had an absolute free-ranging authority.
The sway, sparkle and jeweled caprice he brought to the quieter passages were seductive. His thunder, when thunder was called for, was both potent and lush. Result: an instant and prolonged standing ovation.”
