Feb 3, 2023

The pianist Frank Dupree’s new album for Capriccio is his third devoted to the music of Kapustin: his previous concerto album, which included the Fourth Piano Concerto, made it to the short list in the Concerto category for last year’s Gramophone Classical Music Awards, and this new release, as well as containing the Fifth Piano Concerto, also includes the Concerto for two pianos and percussion, and the Sinfonietta for two pianos, both works find Frank joined by Adrian Brendle, and Dominik Beykirch conducts the Berlin RSO in the Fifth Piano Concerto.

James Jolly caught up with Frank to talk about how he discovered Kapustin's music and how it perfectly plays to his strengths as both a classical and jazz pianist.
