Torrent description

Sergei Rachmaninoff - Rachmaninoff plays Rachmaninoff


Sergei Vasilievich Rachmaninoff (1 April 1873 [O.S. 20 March]–28 March 1943) was a Russian composer, pianist, and conductor, one of the last great champions of the Romantic style of European classical music.

Rachmaninoff is regarded as one of the most influential pianists of the 20th century. He had legendary technical faculties and rhythmic drive, and his large hands were able to cover the interval of a thirteenth on the keyboard (a hand span of approximately twelve inches). According to fellow composer Igor Stravinsky Rachmaninoff stood 6 feet 6 inches (198 cm) tall. He also had the ability to play complex compositions upon first hearing. Many recordings were made by the Victor Talking Machine Company recording label of Rachmaninoff performing his own music, as well as works from the standard repertoire.

His reputation as a composer generated a variety of opinions, before his music gained steady recognition across the world. The 1954 edition of Grove's Dictionary of Music and Musicians notoriously dismissed his music as "monotonous in texture ... consist[ing] mainly of artificial and gushing tunes" and predicted that his popular success was "not likely to last". To this, Harold C. Schonberg, in his 'Lives of the Great Composers', responded, "It is one of the most outrageously snobbish and even stupid statements ever to be found in a work that is supposed to be an objective reference."

Piano Concerto No. 1 in F-sharp minor, Op. 1

Piano Concerto No. 1 was composed in 1892, when Rachmaninoff was 19 years old. He dedicated the work to Alexander Siloti. He revised the work in 1917.

The work is in three movements

* Vivace (F sharp minor)
* Andante cantabile (D major)
* Allegro scherzando (F sharp minor ? F sharp major) [1917 version: Allegro vivace]

The first movement was premiered on 17 March 1892 at the Moscow Conservatoire, with the composer himself at the piano and Vasily Safonov conducting. The revised version was first performed in its entirety on 29 January 1919 in New York.

The concerto is one of a group of early works Rachmaninoff intended to revise, together with the Caprice Bohémien, Op. 12 and the Symphony No. 1, Op. 13.

Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18

Piano Concerto No. 2 was composed between the autumn of 1900 and April 1901. The second and third movements were first performed with the composer as soloist on 2 December 1900. The complete work was premiered, again with the composer as soloist, on October 27, 1901, with his cousin Alexander Siloti conducting.

This piece is one of his most enduringly popular pieces, and established his fame as a concerto composer.
The revised version has a tighter structure, more refined harmony, and more sophisticated piano writing and orchestration. The original thematic material is almost unchanged.

Movements :

1.Moderato
2.Adagio sostenuto
3.Allegro scherzando

At its 1897 premiere, Rachmaninoff's first symphony, though now considered a significant achievement, was derided by critics. Compounded by problems in his personal life, Rachmaninoff fell into a depression that lasted for several years. His second piano concerto confirmed his recovery from clinical depression and writer's block. The concerto was dedicated to Nikolai Dahl, a physician who had done much to restore Rachmaninoff's self-confidence.


Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor, Op. 30

Piano Concerto No. 3 (colloquially known as the "Rach 3") is famous for its technical and musical demands on the performer. It has the reputation of being one of the most difficult concertos in the standard piano repertoire.

Following the form of a standard concerto, the piece is in three movements:

1. Allegro ma non tanto (D minor)
2. Intermezzo: Adagio (F sharp minor/D flat major)
3. Finale: Alla breve (D minor ? D major)

The third movement follows the second without pause. A typical performance of the concerto lasts about forty minutes.

Written in the peaceful setting of his family's country estate, Ivanovka, Rachmaninoff completed the concerto on September 23, 1909. Contemporary with this work are his First Piano Sonata and his tone poem The Isle of the Dead.

The concerto is respected, even feared, by most pianists. Józef Hofmann, the pianist to whom the work is dedicated, never publicly performed it, saying that it "wasn't for" him (though this must have been for reasons other than the work's technical difficulty, since Hofmann was one of the greatest technicians in pianistic history). And Gary Graffman lamented he had not learned this concerto as a student, when he was "still too young to know fear".


Piano Concerto No. 4 in G minor, Op. 40

Piano Concerto No. 4 was completed in 1941 after several earlier versions were written in 1927 and 1928. It is written in three movements:

1. Allegro vivace (G minor)
2. Largo (C major)
3. Allegro vivace (G major)

The concerto is probably the least known of all Rachamaninoff's piano concertos, but it is frequently performed in Russia. Like most of Rachmaninoff's late works, the concerto has a daring chromaticism and a distinctive jazzy quality.

The first version was premiered in 1927 with conductor Leopold Stokowski, the Philadelphia Orchestra, and the composer as soloist. It was met with lukewarm praise. Rachmaninoff eventually revised parts of the first and third movements, but the work has never become as popular as the other concertos.

There may be several reasons for this. The structure was criticized for being amorphous and difficult to grasp on a single hearing. Many have noted Rachmaninoff's inspiration from George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue, a piece for piano and orchestra completed in 1924, only three years before Rachmaninoff finished his own. These jazz elements, most felt, were not consistent with Rachmaninoff's previous brooding and dark themes. Only the second movement (Largo) contains a prominent melody, while the external movements seem to be comprised mainly of virtuosic piano runs and cadenzas.


Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini in A minor, opus 43

Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini is a concertante work (20 to 25 minutes in length). It is written for solo piano and symphony orchestra, closely resembling a piano concerto. The work was written at Villa Senar, according to the score, from July 3 to August 18, 1934. Rachmaninoff himself, a noted interpreter of his own works, played the solo piano part at the piece's premiere at the Lyric Opera House in Baltimore, Maryland on November 7, 1934 with the Philadelphia Orchestra conducted by Leopold Stokowski.

After a brief introduction, the first variation is played before the theme. Paganini's theme is stated on strings with the piano picking out salient notes, after the first variation. Rachmaninoff likely got the idea of having a variation before the theme from the finale of Beethoven's Eroica symphony. Variations II to VI recombine elements of the theme. The pauses and rhetorical flourishes for the piano in variation VI herald a change of tempo and tone. The piano next gravely intones the Dies Irae, the "day of wrath" plainchant from the medieval Mass of the Dead, while the orchestra accompanies with a slower version of the opening motif of the Paganini theme. The piece is one of several by Rachmaninoff to quote the Dies Irae plainchant melody.

*Sergei Rachmaninoff,piano
*Eugene Ormandy,conductor (Concerto no.1, No.3, No.4)
*Leopold Stokowski,conductor (Concerto No.2, Rhapsody)
*The Philadelphia Orchestra
