Piano Recital: DongKyu Kim
First Prize, 2010 San Marino International Piano Competition
Complementing the more familiar piano sonatas, Prokofiev’s shorter but by no means slighter piano works span his entire career, from the precociously brilliant Four Etudes, Op. 2 and Four Pieces, Op. 3, via the neo-classical Four Pieces, Op. 32, the powerfully trenchant Sonatinas, Op. 54 and the colourful Fifth Sonata, to his final unfinished Tenth Sonata. One of the most exciting performers of his generation, DongKyu Kim won first prize at the 2010 San Marino International Competition and the highest award at the 2009 International Jeunesses Musicales Competition Belgrade.
“I’d wager there is room for this album in any Prokofiev collection...and the fact that it’s so well-played and well-recorded makes it all the more valuable.” MusicWeb International, 22nd April 2013

Prokofiev: Piano Sonatas Nos. 1-9
This 4-CD collector’s box features Matti Raekallio with piano solo music by Sergei Prokofiev, including a complete set of the nine Piano Sonatas.
Finnish-born pianist Matti Raekallio has built an international reputation particularly upon his reference interpretations of Prokofiev’s piano music. A prolific pedagogue, he joined in 2007 the faculty of the Juilliard School in New York, having previously held professorships at Western Michigan University, as well as in Helsinki, Stockholm, and Hanover.
Also included are the famous Ten Pieces for Piano from Romeo and Juliet, Visions fugitives, and Sarcasms, as well as further cycles and popular piano solo pieces
All recordings were previously released to highest acclaim.
“Formidably played and well recorded, it will alert even the most seasoned listener to the conflicting elements of Prokofiev's always "difficult", prickly and volatile nature...[Raekallio] plays with a shot-from-guns virtuosity that carries all before it...[it] makes for compulsive listening, achieving a keen sense of "works of art that are full of glittering razor-blades" (Picasso)” Gramophone Magazine, October 2011
