Lukas Vondracek, called "one of the greatest pianistic talents of our times" (Stuttgarter Zeitung), takes on Shostakovich's intense, brilliant concerto. Prokofiev's clever First and Beethoven's stirring Seventh make sparkling companions. PROKOFIEV Classical Symphony This playful debut symphony looks back toward Haydn with affection - and more than a hint of irony. SHOSTAKOVICH Piano Concerto No. 1 Grippingly dramatic, and technically daunting for the soloist. Originally conceived as a double concerto with trumpet, which often acts as a sardonic foil to the piano. BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 7 Profound and cascading; the second movement underscores the powerful and emotional apex of Oscar winning film The King's Speech.
