Lisa Batiashvili’s fifth recording for Deutsche Grammophon is devoted to music by Sergey Prokofiev. Her recording bridges the gap between serious and popular music of the early 20th century. The two violin concerts of Prokoviev are an outstanding and especially compositions. With her unique talent to turn standard repertoire into something new, fresh, elegant and special, this album will allow the listener to rediscover Prokofiev through Lisa’s eyes.
