Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 2

 

"The concerto can be perceived as a fight between two worlds - diatonic (consonant) and chromatic (dissonant)-, where diatonic represents, so to speak, good forces and chromatic, dark ones".

2008 Schnittke / Bach CD

"The conjunction of Schnittke and Bach (...) works fruitfully in this disc." (...) "Svetlana Ponomarëva's colouristic evocation is consistently impressive (...) has a stark Tarkovskian quality to it" (...) "It's the Allegro that really separates this performance from Berman's - we find that Ponomarëva is just that much more biting." (...) "Her G major French Suite is attractively voiced, and played with clarity and poise" MusicWeb international, Jonathan Woolf, January 2009
