“It’s amazing, how little of Rachmaninoff’s music is still known in the West apart from his piano concertos and the Second Symphony.” – The pianist Alexander Melnikov presents three works from the Russian composer’s repertoire of solo piano pieces: the dance-like “Variations on a theme of Corelli”, the bravura “Variations on a theme of Chopin” and the technically ambitious “Études-Tableaux”.
