Prokofiev's Concerto No. 1 is known to be the shortest of all his concertos, it is in one movement, about 15 minutes in duration. It became famous thanks to is the powerful energy and rich inflection, beginning with a light, lyrical tone in the first chapter before turning bold and intense in the second and returning to a softer, more mellow tone in the final movement.
The concert ended with Rachmaninov's Concerto No. 3 in D minor with British-Vietnamese piano soloist Nguyen Bich Tra. The Concerto No. 3 the signature work of Rachmaninov. The composer perfectly shows his talent in writing long, beautiful melodies as well as how the three movements are connected in a unified way but create many different emotions.
