Rachmaninov completed these gorgeous (and less demanding than one would expect) piano duets in April of 1894, at the ripe age of 21. They are magnificent and show the lush command of the piano this Russian Romantic would make his signature. Play either the primo or secondo part, and luxuriate! Includes complete printed music score with both primo and secondo piano parts, and a compact disc featuring the duets in two formats: split-channel stereo with secondo part on the left channel, primo on the right, so you can play either part; and then again with just the secondo part in stereo so you can perform the primo part alongside.
Performed by Sondra Bianca, piano
Accompaniment: Harriet Wingreen, piano.
