We delve deep into the musical nostalgia of the mid-twentieth century with two great orchestrators: Respighi and Stokowski. Respighi’s orchestrations of Rachmaninoff’s musical paintings, from seagulls to a Russian fairground, are a brilliant combination of the imagination of two composers. Prepare to be stunned by the extraordinary playing of Walnut Creek pianist Mungunchimeg Buriad in the Rachmaninoff’s great Second Piano Concerto.
Bach/Stokowski – Air on the G String
Rachmaninoff/Respighi – Etudes-Tableaux
