SF Symphony


SF Symphony, Davies Hall, CONCERT. Hailed as “leader of the pack of Russian pianists,” (Classical Source) Denis Kozhukhin takes on Prokofiev's fiendishly challenging Piano Concerto No. 2, a work he has performed worldwide to rave reviews: “From the spare chill elegance of the first movement’s opening to the keyboard cascades that followed, Kozhukhin had an absolute free-ranging authority.” (The Guardian) Then, experience Rachmaninoff’s romantic Second Symphony as it moves from brooding restraint to wild energy, and is punctuated by unforgettable moments of utmost beauty.
