How many piano concertos can you fit in one concert?main
Valery Gergiev is conducting all five by Prokofiev at one BBC Prom – a piece of swagger programming that lacks poetry or coherent reasoning.
Now Gergiev best mate and fellow-Putinist Denis Matsuev has announced he will play all three Tchaikovsky piano concertos in one concert next week in Yekaterinburg.
The concert has been given the title ‘Triumph’. Let’s hope the trend does not spread further.
