Sergei Prokofiev [1891-1953]: Piano Concerto No 1, in D Flat Major, op. 10 [reblog] 🏡

from Oannes blog…

…for a Wednesday morning

Ο Σεργκέι Προκόφιεβ, για πολλούς – και για μένα – ο μεγαλύτερος συνθέτης του 20ου αιώνα, έγραψε το πρώτο του κονσέρτο για πιάνο στην ηλικία των είκοσι. Είχε αρχίσει να συνθέτει από τα πέντε, στα εννέα έγραψε την πρώτη του όπερα.
Το κονσέρτο Νο 1, “ευσύνοπτο”, μικρότερο σε διάρκεια απ’ τα επόμενα, δεν παύει βεβαίως να είναι ένα αριστούργημα. Το ακούμε από τον Vladimir Ashkenazy [πιάνο] και την London Symphony Orchestra υπό τον André Previn.

Sergei Prokofiev, for many – myself among them – the greatest composer of the 20th century, wrote his first piano concerto at the age of twenty. He started composing from five, at nine he wrote his first opera.
The No 1, more “graspable”, of shorter duration than the other concerts, is nevertheless a masterpiece. We hear it from Vladimir Ashkenazy [piano] and the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by André Previn.

Τα μέρη / The parts: 1. Allegro brioso 2. Andante assai 3. Allegro scherzando

Happy Hump Day!

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
