If there is a work linked to the name of Martha Argerich, it is Prokofiev's Third Concerto, a concentration of energy and lyricism. Her 1967 recording with Claudio Abbado is legendary. Of the series of five piano concertos by the Russian composer, the third is undeniably the most famous. Completed in Bretagne in 1921, it offers a sort of synthesis of the stylistic characteristics of its author: expressive richness, mystery, and a fundamentally playful approach to music. In the second half of the programme, Myung–Whun Chung conducts extracts from Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet Suites Nos. 1 & 2 which offer the quintessence of the vast ballet based on Shakespeare's play. We had the story told last week in a fantasy– now for a different interpretation… The concert was recorded in the Philharmonie, Paris on 4 December 2020.

The year 2020 has been a special year to all of us: no school and work, no social activities, no meal gatherings, no live performances, no nothing…This new normal has brought us from physical life to the virtual world. With that, we have been seeing more and more online performances and that was the birth of the programme Student Concert Hall. The programme invited current students and recent graduates to submit clips of their performances. Within a month, we received more than 300 applications and 500 clips. From April to June, tune in to Student Concert Hall on Saturdays and Sundays at 1:10 pm, and be enthralled by these accomplished student performers.
