Denis Kozhukhin

The young virtuosic Russian pianist, Denis Kozhukhin, closes this week's series of Russian Romantics from LSO St Luke's in London. He pairs Prokofiev's 9th Sonata with a Prelude and Fugue by Taneyev, the very professor who suggested that Prokofiev should start lessons in piano and composition. The series is brought to a sparkling conclusion in Rachmaninov's Variations on a Theme of Corelli, a Romantic take on a Baroque classic.
