PIANO CONCERTI
(SKY1703)

Jane Coop, piano

Three piano concerti, three piano sounds, all of which make use of the percussive nature of the instrument. But it’s the “in between” places that really distinguish the works: Bartok uses a lean, elegant texture in the outer movements, sandwiching an atmospheric, prayer-like recitation; Prokofiev prefers alush, highly romantic affect throughout; and Forsyth draws on his South African heritage, with a tendency toward rhythmic propulsion, and even incorporating jazz elements. This recording is a veritable feast of colour and diversity.
