It is not surprising that Prokofiev's 3rd Piano Concerto is widely played, as it provides much excitement for pianist and audience. One of the ultimate Sphinx-like riddles, though, is why the 2nd Piano Concerto does not enjoy similar success. A few lucky people realize the greatness of this Everest of piano concertos. Luckily, music is always being re-discovered, whether it is Bach, Vivaldi, swing jazz, or disco. Hopefully the Internet can speed this process, because more people should get caught up in the whirlwind music of Prokofiev. Almost all of Prokofiev's music for the piano is alternately clever and bombastic. You might accumulate all of Prokofiev's piano music and wonder where to find some similar music. You won't find it. Sergei was a true original and any attempts at imitation would be futile. Luckily, you can come back to much of Prokofiev's music again and again, finding something new every time.

There are relatively few complete sets of Prokofiev's Piano Concertos, and Ashkenazy plays them as well as anybody. Later, you may want to supplement this set with individual works by Argerich or Richter. Rest assured that you don't want to miss out on this set, especially with 2 CDs for the price of one. --- amazon.com
