AB MICHELANGELI plays:S.RACHMANINOFF -Concerto no.4 op.40- I Tempo(1
AB MICHELANGELI plays:S.RACHMANINOFF -Concerto no.4 op.40- I Tempo(1 Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli plays:Sergei Rachmaninoff -Concerto no.4 op.40 I Tempo- # Philharmonia Orchestra/Ettore Gracis - London March 1957 Sergei Rachmaninoff completed his Piano Concerto No. 4 in G minor, Op. 40 in 1926 and the work currently exists in three versions. Following its unsuccessful premiere he made cuts and other amendments before publishing it in 1928. With continued lack of success, he withdrew the work, eventually revising and republishing it in 1941. Form: Compared to its predecessors, the Fourth contains sharper thematic profiles along with a refinement of textures in keyboard and orchestra. These qualities do not lead to greater simplicity but to a different sort of complexity. It was also a continuation of Rachmaninoff's long-range creative growth. The Third and the recomposed First Concertos were less heavily orchestrated than the Second. In keeping with its general character, the Fourth is lighter still yet more oblique.[2] The concerto is written in three movements: 1. Allegro vivace (G minor) 2. Largo (C major) 3. Allegro vivace (G major) « Essere un pianista e un musicista non è una professione. E' una filosofia, uno stile di vita che non può basarsi né sulle buone intenzioni né sul talento naturale. Bisogna avere prima di tutto uno spirito di sacrificio inimmaginabile. » (Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli) Biography di ABMichelangeli: Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli (January 5, 1920 June 12, 1995) was an Italian classical pianist. He has been ...

Arcadi Volodos - Moment Musical no.2 Rachmaninoff
Arcadi Volodos - Moment Musical no.2 Rachmaninoff Together with Rachmaninoff's prelude op.32 no.10, this is my favourite piano piece ever. Volodos plays this so beautifully, even if you do not like classical music, you'll appreciate this piece. it is amazing how Volodos get's all the voices out so clearly, creating so much color in his tones. this is an extremely difficult piece, and he plays it practically flawless. unlike other pieces, he plays this one exactly how Rachmaninoff wrote it down. an amazing recording by the world's greatest living pianist!

Sergei Rachmaninoff "Sonata in G Minor for Cello and Piano Op 19 No
Sergei Rachmaninoff "Sonata in G Minor for Cello and Piano Op 19 No Proformed by Yo-Yo Ma and Emanuel Ax . Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninoff, 1 April 1873 [OS 20 March] 28 March 1943) was a Russian composer, pianist, and conductor. He was one of the finest pianists of his day and, as a composer, the last great representative of Russian late Romanticism in classical music. Early influences of Tchaikovsky, Rimsky-Korsakov and other Russian composers gave way to a thoroughly personal idiom which included a pronounced lyricism, expressive breadth, structural ingenuity and a tonal palette of rich, distinctive orchestral colors. Understandably, the piano figures prominently in Rachmaninoff's compositional output, either as a solo instrument or as part of an ensemble. He made it a point, however, to use his own skills as a performer to explore fully the expressive possibilities of the instrument. Even in his earliest works, he revealed a sure grasp of idiomatic piano writing and a striking gift for melody. In some of his early orchestral pieces he showed the first signs of a talent for tone painting, which he would perfect in The Isle of the Dead, and he began to show a similar penchant for vocal writing in two early sets of songs, Opp. 4 and 8. Rachmaninoff's masterpiece, however, is his choral symphony The Bells, in which all of his talents are fused and unified Sergei Rachmaninoff's Cello Sonata in G minor, op. 19, a sonata for cello and piano, was composed in 1901 and published a year later. As typical of sonatas in the Romantic period, it has ...
