Rachmaninov / Tchaikovsky

  • RACHMANINOV: Sonata in G Minor for Piano and Cello, Op. 19
  • TCHAIKOVSKY: Pezzo Capriccioso

(with pianist Frederick Moyer)

Difficult personal circumstances, a spirit of renewal, and coincidence relate the two works on this album.  Tchaikovsky’s Pezzo Capriccioso was a late, brief work, while Rachmaninoff’s Sonata was an early effort by a promising young pianist.
