Rachmaninov's composition teacher, famed Russian composer Anton Arensky, wrote these lovely and simple piano duets which run the gamut of emotion in true Russian Romantic style. Stravinsky's wonderful dances round out this charming album with a tongue-in-cheek pair of parts, one extremely easy, the other a dizzying rhythmic joke! Stravinsky loved these three pieces so much that he later orchestrated them as Nos. 1-3 of his Suite No. 2 for small orchestra. A must-have for the less advanced student who wants to play luscious Russian Romantic music!
The Soloist is accompanied by a second piano.
