Études-tableaux op.39. Corelli Variations . Six Poems op.38

Alexander Melnikov, Elena Brilova

Excerpt:IV. Allegro assai

Alternating the roles of soloist and accompanist, Alexander Melnikov has brought together here two works emblematic of Rachmaninoff at his creative peak – before it was brutally interrupted by the sound and the fury of 1917: the famous Études-tableaux op.39 and Six Poems op.38 were followed by a very long silence. In 1931, it was a man broken by destiny who produced the Variations on a Theme by Corelli, a bitter work that yearns for a past gone forever.
This title was released for the first time in 2008.
