NIKOLAI PETROV PLAYS CONCERTI



On this page, Nikolai Petrov plays concerti by Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev, Khatchaturian and others.  And there are two different performances of the Prokofiev 3rd concerto.  All of these, with the possible exception of the Beethoven movement which is somewhat perfunctory, are splendid performances that admirers of these works really must hear.

The one that knocked my socks off is the recording of the Prokofiev 2nd concerto.  If you just have time to listen to one, this is the one you must hear.
