‘Ah, the Rach 3!’ says John Gielgud, awe in his voice, in Shine – adding to the legend of this most famously difficult concerto. And yet underneath the formidable virtuosity, there’s real poetry in the piece. It takes a great pianist to bring it out, at once bravura and lyrically expressive, and Kirill Gerstein is such a player.

Modest Mussorgsky’s tribute to an artist friend was originally written for piano, but was orchestrated unforgettably by Maurice Ravel, giving Mussorgsky’s more rough-hewn original a sophisticated, glamorous panache.
