Rachmaninoff Complete Etudes-tableaux, Op. 39

I am delighted to share with you a recent live performance of the complete Rachmaninoff Etudes-Tableaux, Op. 39, performed in Taipei last month. It closely captured my passion and awe for this extraordinary music.

Inspired by Italian writer Italo Calvino’s novel, If on a Winter’s Night a Traveler, Rachmaninoff – Winter Night programs the complete Etudes-tableaux, Op. 39, transcriptions and the Sonata No. 2. It takes us on a journey of vast emotional landscape and architectural arch, with distinct character, mood and story. Some incredible pieces are rarely performed in concerts, such as Etudes Nos. 3, 4, 7 and 8.
I hope you will enjoy this musical journey with me!
