 A Chance to Answer

Using this occasion to put the things right - regarding the accelerando at 3:20 in the first concerto: it is actually the Composer's demand - he wrote it, and you can check it in the score. Also, there is no "true pianissimo" written in the piece, and the first duty of any performer is to follow Composer's demands as much as possible. Also, if some pianists slow down before the second and the third return of the opening theme - it is their action, and it goes against Prokofiev's intentions; he did not write a ritenuto. In other words - have a look at the score, and then write what you think. [by Nikolai Demidenko (Performer)]
