Rachmaninov: Piano Music, Vol. 6 – Sergei Dukachev
Divine Art’s acclaimed series continues with one of the acknowledged masters of romantic music, Sergei Rachmaninov. This album is taken from live performances in England, between 1999 and 2005, by the Russian pianist Sergei Dukachev and includes some favourite preludes and etudes, the Second Sonata, and the relatively rarely-heard Variations. Dukachev is gaining an enthusiastic following in the UK as well as in his native country, and the brilliance of these performances demonstrates why.
