Total Time: c. 1h50' Is a live recording of Prokofiev's Piano Concertos a foolish project ? Maybe but maybe not with such interpreters. During the Prokofiev Festival that was given this year by the Monnaie Symphony Orchestra - one of the best opera orchestras in the world - Fuga Libera has put the microphones on the stage of the Concert Hall of Brussel's Palace for Fine Arts, to record an unforgettable event : five concertos performed in two concerts by Abdel Rahman El Bacha. Under the baton of Kazushi Ono, the succesful successor of Antonio Pappano in la Monnaie Opera, the french-libanese pianist gives us a lesson of mastery. With his perfectly organized artistic mind, he assembles most harmoniously Prokofiev's visionary and fanciful spirit with the composer's classical trends, in the irreplacable and electric atmosphere of the concert. In this version of these five masterworks, the listener will discover thousand aspects that he never heard !
