Description

Recorded in 2000 by composer Vladimir Ashkenazy, pianist Helene Grimaud and the Philharmonia Orchestra, this program combines a few different incarnations of Rachmaninov's music - the intensely emotional, soul-delving and epic in the large format of the Second Concerto and the visually evocative world of the Prelude and Etudes-Tableaux excerpts, so concise in their structure and embodying so well the composer's gift for establishing moods and atmospheres. For Grimaud, Rachmaninov's Second Piano Concerto covers every shade within the color black. "It glitters and shimmers like a blackbird's plumage," she said. The second movement, for example, she sees "as metal that the smith heats until it is white hot and that becomes dark bronze when it cools down."

Musicians:
Sergei Rachmaninov, composer
Vladimir Ashkenazy, composer
Helene Grimaud, piano
