Prokofiev's First Piano Concerto - Toradze / Budapest Festival / Fischer

Piano Concerto No. 1 in D-flat major, Op. 10

He began writing it in 1911 and finished it in 1912, so it is just over 100 years old now. As some of the best things continue to impress and inspire long after their creators and first interpreters have passed their ways, we have this remarkable live performance from Alexander Toradze with the Budapest Festival Orchestra under the direction of its founder, Ivan Fischer. This truly was a special performance.
