A piano-centric program, this episode begins with Prokofiev’s powerful Second Piano Concerto, and closes with Poulenc’s delightful Concerto for Two Pianos. William Walton’s First Symphony is between them, and Gerard McBurney offers an insightful commentary on the work. Pianist Kirill Gerstein also discusses the Prokofiev concerto. Semyon Bychkov conducts.
