Rachmaninov: Etudes-tableaux, Op. 39 – No. 2 in A Minor: Lento assai

Pianist Boris Giltburg sees Rachmaninov’s Études-tableaux,Op. 39 as cinematic short stories or colourful tone paintings. In contrast, the unashamedly beautiful Moments musicaux are concentrated explorations of a single idea or mood, from struggle and pain towards light and genuine joy. In these collections, which contain some of the composer’s most affecting music, Rachmaninov shows himself to be a master of the meticulously crafted short-form genre.
