Polina Leschenko has created a unique programme featuring predominately Prokofiev’s works. covering the entirety of his body of work, it begins with a thrilling performance of Prokofiev’s Classical Symphony in an unedited transcription for two pianos (by Rikuya Terashima). Polina is joined for this unique performance by the world renowned Martha Argerich. Prokofiev’s 7th Sonata, one of the most moving and virtuosic pieces of the composer’s repertoire, follows. Polina’s interpretation will surely come to be a benchmark in the discography of this work. the Cello Sonata that follows is a celebration of Polina’s friendship with the increasingly well known swiss cellist Christian Poltera. together, they give a noble, inspiring and delicate performance of this work. the programme finishes with three short virtuosic pieces recorded with Roby Lakatos: Prokofiev’s March from ‘l’Amour des Trois Oranges’; Tchaïkovsky’s Melodie (from ‘Souvenir d’un Lieu Cher’); and Rachmaninov’s Vocalise, in a new arrangement by Roby Lakatos.
