Great success in Slovakia with Prokofiev’s 3rd Piano Concerto

Monday, May 15th 2023

Gustav Piekut performed Prokofiev’s demanding 3rd Piano Concerto with the Slovak State Philharmonic Orchestra Kosice under the direction of Christian Øland. After the concert, the cultural media Moja Kultura wrote:

“He played with remarkable nuances of sound—so controlled that one experienced the proverbial silence in the hall during the pianissimo passages. It was a truly brilliant performance, played at tempos that took your breath away. (…) Prokofiev, played by the two Danish artists, became a primal force, then a pleasant rhapsody, then humorous, brilliantly virtuosic, and sensitively lyrical—beautifully executed by the soloist.”
