II. Adagio sostenuto
III. Allegro scherzando
Georgian pianist Khatia Buniatishvili evokes rapturous colors from the Rach 2 in this fine collaboration with Paavo Järvi and the Czech Philharmonic Orchestra. Together, via the “Adagio sostenuto,” they achieve a transcendental balance and flow. Buniatishvili plays with furious conviction and fluttering precision on the expansive Rach 3.
