Denis Kozhukhin - piano

Denis Kozhukhin

Beethoven’s marvellous Piano Concerto No. 4 marked the beginning of a prodigiously fertile period in the composer’s production, during, which he took the innovations that he had introduced with his third concerto to a deeper level. When we listen to this concerto being played by Denis Kozhukhin, considered to be one of the most important Russian pianists of his generation, we can easily imagine the sense of awe that must have been felt by the first people to hear this work, with its short, but poignant second movement, or their sensations when, contrary to all expectations and conventions, right at the very beginning, they heard just the piano, instead of the orchestra.
The concert continues with Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony No. 8. The money that he earned from a series of professional trips to England enabled Dvořák to realise his dream of buying a farm in Vysoká, where he spent the summer months with the family, feeling “as if he were far removed from the world” and being able to “appreciate the beauties of divine nature”. Symphony No. 8 is therefore the faithful portrait of that peaceful and tranquil atmosphere.
