The winner of the Gold Medal of the Van Cliburn International Competition returns to Casa da Música with a program centred on his favourite composer, Sergei Prokofieff. Vadym Kholodenko recorded all the concertos by the Russian master and his most recent album, released by Harmonia Mundi, is entirely dedicated to him. Among the works chosen for this recital is the portentous Sonata No. 7, one of the most popular and difficult pieces of the 20th century. The program is divided between Prokofieff and Schubert, and from the latter we will hear a sonata rarely performed or recorded - in contrast to the famous Three piano pieces D. 946, a magnificent example of the Austrian composer's talent for writing unforgettable melodies.
