Born less than twenty years apart, Rachmaninoff and Prokofiev were two of the greatest composer-pianists of the 20th Century and their instrument played a central role in many of their greatest works. In this recording, virtuoso pianist Denis Matsuev contrasts their second piano concertos, pieces that are both formidable and unmistakably Russian in their own way. He is joined by the Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theater and conductor Valery Gergiev.
