    Default Prokofiev Second Piano Concerto in G Minor

    Serge Prokofiev completed this piano concerto in 1913 and dedicated it to one of his conservatoire friends, Maximilian Schmidthof, a brilliant pianist who committed suicide. The concerto also was affected by Prokofiev losing his father that year. The Andantino-Allegretto starts with the introduction of clarinet among pizzicatos before the soloist enters much like the entry in the later third concerto. The cadenza is a brilliant one with enough display of technical bravura. The conclusion to the movement is majestic.

    The Scherzo is another roller coaster feeling!



    The Intermezzo is brutally sensational with an attack on the senses of the audience
