Then came the Prokofiev Third Piano Concerto, with soloist Andrew von Oeyen. It has never been played better. The lyrical passages contained beauties not heard on a recording, and the brilliant finale, which has both a glorious melody and virtuoso coruscations, such as prestissimo double glissandos, had to be seen to be believed. In spite of a standing ovation and multiple curtain calls, the young pianist did not play an encore. Bravo!
