Prokofiev: Piano Concerto No.5 / NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester / cond. Mirga Grazinaite-Tyla

“[…] Denis Kozhukhin was an impressively accurate choice for this solo part. The pianistic challenges did not seem to concern the Russian in the least; he designed the harsh brilliance of the first movement with laconic precision, contrasting the quirky, angular Toccata movement with the unexpectedly dreamily beginning of the Larghetto. Kozhukhin played it all away with ease, with that pleasant, sleek, triumphant serenity that only sets in when you do not want to prove anything anymore. But he could also effortlessly increase pressure and operating temperature to storm into the final.”
