. . . [Behzod Abduraimov] tackles Tchaikovsky's familiar notes with exemplary aplomb . . . his playing conveys depth and grandeur. He's the master of all her surveys . . . [Prokofiev's Concerto No. 3] was Abduraimov's competition calling card and he plays it still with supersonic drive, daunting clarity and lots of hard glitter . . . Separating the two concertos by a soothing solo snippet from "Swan Lake" was a wise move; without that, I might have needed to cool my head under a tap.
