Prokofiev: Piano Concerto No. 3 in C # Major

I love this concerto. I hail it as one of the greatest piano concertos of the modern era. It is a difficult concerto to perform and a delightful one at the same time. I have heard many versions of this concerto but today I heard Lang Lang and had no hesitation in holding this reading with Paavo Jarvi and L'Orchestre de Paris as the definitive one. Serge Prokofiev wrote this is in 1912.
