DRANISHNIKOVA Poème for oboe and piano
ROSLAVETS Viola Sonata No.1
RACHMANINOV Trio Élégiaque No.2 in D minor Op.9
Rachmaninov’s second piano trio, written in homage to his mentor, friend and inspiration, Tchaikovsky, is a work of immense passion and devotion. Nikolay Roslavets’ hauntingly beautiful viola sonata is just one example of the work that earned him great success in Russia after the October Revolution of 1917 – before disputes with authorities forced him to move to Uzbekistan. Marina Dranishnikova’s lyrical Poème for oboe and piano (1953) was, ironically, inspired by an unhappy love for an oboist.
