About

The transcriptions of Sergei Rachmaninov enjoyed great respect among pianists of that time already during the composerís lifetime.

In addition to piano concertos, preludes, etudes and Variations on a Theme of Corelli, Rachmaninovís arrangements were gradually becoming the composerís showcase.

On the one hand, each work of this kind enables the display of purely virtuoso skills, while on the other, due to the often dense texture, it prompts us to seek a way of presenting harmonic and polyphonic consonances.

This album by Ivan Shemchuk includes a collection of these piano arrangements, enriched with the popular cycle of 6 Morceaux for 4 hands, op.11.
