Our 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 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 Russia, and the brilliance of these concert performances demonstrates why.

Reviews

ConcertoNet

Interesting in many ways… that they are performed by a Russian pianist somehow adds extra Russian taste. Mr Dukachev [has] trademark Russian pianistic technique – steely tone, masculine power and glitzy virtuosity… meticulous attention to the structural elements of the music. Music lovers may well wish to put [this] on their CD shelves

Music And Vision

[This series is] intriguing us certainly, and perhaps edifying us also. Rachmaninov characteristically lets rip with much whizz-bang pianism. Dukachev shares with [the composer] both a first name and a comparably enviable technique.
