Greatest Piano Concertos of All Timeplmilligan1968
The Contenders: Page 3
Probably the most difficult of all piano concertos, but that's not what's important.. But the great emotion Prokofiev gives us, seems like a different side of Prokofiev (quite different from the first or third concerto at least). To me it feels like anxiety and longing.
Absolutely one of the greatest underrated concertos in the repertoire. Incredible wonderful.
You need to like Metal til fully enjoy the first movement. that's probably because its higher on the list.

One of the best openings!
This piano concerto No. 1 sounds like a very exciting mix of Shostakovich pianoconcerti with a Stravinskian neoclassical style. There is only one recording available, on Naxos with Leo Smit as the soloist.
An absolute masterpiece - achingly beautiful melodies, dazzlingly passagework - this concert o has everything. It inspired composers like Chopin & Mendelssohn and deserves to be far better known.
