Rachmaninoff: Preludes and Melodies – Alessio Bax (piano)

In his second solo piano recital disc for Signum, Alessio Bax further demonstrates his dazzling skill and flair in performance and interpretation – this time with piano works by Rachmaninoff. The programme is centred round the Preludes, Op. 23, but takes in a broad selection of his other studies, etudes, melodies, and transcriptions; Bax describes the programme as being a collection of ‘visions and landscapes’.



 "... Rachmaninov playing on the Mercedes level. Highly polished secure and ultra fast when needed. ..." *****

Marius Dawn - Pianist magazine - February/March 2014


"...Recommended."

Peter J Rabinowitz - Fanfare - January/February 2012


"Intoxicating Preludes coupled with student works and transcriptions... Signum’s sound is bold and exemplary ..."

Bryce Morrison - Gramophone Awards issue 2011


"This is one of the most intelligent and engrossing Rachmaninov recitals of recent years. The varied repertoire. consistently richly cushioned sound and an innate kinship with Rachmaninov’s idiom make this a highly rewarding release."  *****

Jeremy Nicholas - Classic FM magazine - September 2011
