Lang Lang - Prokofiev 3 / Bartók 2 (CD)
Composer: Sergei Prokofiev and Béla Bartók
Release Date: October 22, 2013
Conductor: Sir Simon Rattle
Artists:  Lang Lang
Orchestra: Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra
Label: Sony Classical

Pianist Lang Lang, conductor Sir Simon Rattle and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra united for this highly anticipated collaboration presenting Prokofiev's explosive Piano Concerto No. 3 and Bartók’s technically challenging Concerto No. 2.

“Both works have such live and such rhythmic vitality that to my ears they sound absolutely contemporary. I really think these concertos have a musical relevance that’s absolutely right for our time.” - Lang Lang

“I don’t know when I’ve ever heard a pianist who is able to be more uncannily accurate in the Bartók concerto and then still have the technical ability in reserve to make it dance, make it phrase. It goes without saying that the Prokofiev concerto is extraordinarily difficult and virtuosic to play, and it’s an amazingly splashy display piece, but with many moments of delicacy and beauty.” - Sir Simon Rattle
