Roman Zaslavsky presents the artistic and historic context of two composers who left their indelible mark on the development of music in the 20th Century: Sergei Rachmaninov and Sergei Prokofiev, who where very different though being contemporaries. “This second production develops the theme further and picks up the thread where the first left off. Much as Schumann and Liszt left an indelible mark on the evolution of music in Germany, these two composers had a similar impact on composition and piano school in Russia, representing two distinctly different currents.”
Rachmaninov: 3 Préludes, 3 Études-Tableaux, 2 Moments Musicaux Prokofiev: Sonatas Nos. 3&7
