Russian pianist Denis Matsuev, acclaimed for his formidable virtuosity and the controlled power of his playing, is the LSO’s featured artist this season. He opens the 2014/15 series with two all-Russian programmes under the LSO’s outgoing Music Director, Valery Gergiev. Here he tackles Prokofiev’s dazzling Third Concerto, between Shostakovich’s best-loved symphony and the first in a symphonic cycle inspired by Dante’s 'Divine Comedy' by one of Shostakovich’s most prolific pupils.
