In a sharper register, Prokofiev’s Concerto No.2—a daunting feat on piano carried off by Alexandre Kantorow (First Prize at the 2019 Tchaikovsky Competition)—sparked controversy at its premiere: a sense of ‘barbarity’ seemed to emanate from its mechanical style, and it is true that while the work has its mournful moments, the composer imbued it with a phenomenal concentration of energy.
