Yefim Bronfman, piano / New York Philharmonic / Alan Gilbert
"...a surging, mercurial 32-minute work in three contrasting sections that unfold continuously. The concerto opens with slowly emerging lines and chords in the low register of the piano and deep, quietly ominous stirrings in the orchestra. Inexorably the strands coalesce into tense, swelling sustained orchestra harmonies and restless bursts of chords and quasi-crazed figures in the piano…. for all the shifts in language and style, the concerto comes across as organic and inevitable."
