The top-prize winner at the Third International Prokofiev Competition, pianist Alexey Zuev essays three of that namesake composer’s works that mix the lingering Romantic lyricism of the early 20th century with the more demure style of the budding neoclassical movement. He highlights that contrast delightfully with sonatas from each end of the spectrum, by Mozart and Schubert.
