A highlight of Khatia’s recording career where she reunites with Paavo Järvi for her first orchestral recording in 4 years. Rachmaninoff’s epic, dramatic Piano Concertos 2 & 3 are rarely combined on 1 CD. Two blockbuster concertos of the late-romantic repertoire – especially the 2nd concerto as it has featured in many famous movies such as Billy Wilder’s The Seven Year Itch (1955) or Clint Eastwoods’ film Hereafter (2010). The 3rd concerto was prominently featured in Shine (1996) with David Helfgott. This album was recorded with the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, at Rudolfinum, Dvorak Hall, Prague. Khatia was invited to perform the track ‘Kaleidoscope’ on Coldplay’s latest release ‘A Head Full of Dreams’. In 2016, she won the German ‘Echo Klassik’ award for her last album ‘Kaleidoscope’ and also received the Q d’Or award as ‘Musician of the Year 2016’ by French TV station TF1 .
