Prokofiev: Piano Concerto No. 3 in C (Op. 26)

45 minutes
First broadcast:
Sunday 27 July 2003

Gerard McBurney explores Prokofiev's beautifully eccentric and witty Piano Concerto No. 3 in C Op. 26, with the help of specially recorded musical illustrations performed by Yevgeny Sudbin with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra conducted by Julian Clayton. And there's also the chance to hear excerpts from the remarkable interpretation recorded by Prokofiev himself back in the 1930s.
