Together in one package Music Minus One brings you two of nineteenth-century Russia's greatest works for piano and orchestra, Rimsky-Korsakov's Piano Concerto (1883) and his protege Anton Arensky's Fantasia on Russian Folksongs for Piano and Orchestra (1899). Both of these short concerted works are single-movement fantasias on Russian folk themes filled with the thunderous orchestrationa and big Russian sounds one associates with Imperial Russia.

Both of these works present a perfect opportunity for the pianist or advancing student who wants to tackle a big Romantic-era concerted work but may not be ready for the full-scale concerto. With their relatively short lengths and only moderately-difficult piano parts, they give the thrill of full-scale performance with significantly less investment than would be otherwise possible with longer works.

This Music Minus One edition includes a CD containing the complete performance of the concerto in digital stereo; a second digital stereo version of the concerto minus the soloist, voluminously indexed for ease of practice and performance; and a fully annotated score especially prepared for this MMO release, printed on high-quality ivory paper with informative liner notes.

  • Piano Concerto in C-sharp minor, op. 30  Performed by Nikolay Andreyevich Rimsky-Korsakov
  • Fantasia on Russian Folk Songs (Themes of A. Riabinin), op. 48  Performed by Anton Stepanovich Arensky

    Difficulty Level:
  • March 30, 2008 Great work, recording is so-so

    A great piano concerto whose length is short enough so as not to discourage a student or hobbyist. My reduced rating is solely due to the fact that the recording quality is not stellar. It came across as a bit too "fuzzy" for my taste and the baseline volume felt...

    a little low when playing alongside with my piano.
