Very exciting and effective music
Rachmaninoff's last work is an impressive and devilishly difficult duo. It incorporates a wide variety of techniques to create moods varying from the near-despondent to the triumphant closing chords- a very effective close for a concert, and what a way to end a compositional career! Listen to the Ashkenazy/Previn recording to get a good idea of the intensity of this piece.
