Notes & Reviews:

This CD presents a few of Sergej Rachmaninov's rarer piano compositions for four and six hands, some which have never previously been recorded. Considered to be one of the greatest pianists of the 20th century, Rachmaninov continued in and advanced Russia's long-standing tradition in piano music for four hands and composed numerous works in this genre. The CD was recorded at the VIII edition of the chamber music festival, "Armonie della Sera". The works are performed by the Sollini-Barbatano duo, formed by Marco Sollini, a pianist with a long, rich international career and Salvatore Barbatano, a young artist distinguished for his remarkable talent and profound musical sensitivity, and the great French pianist, François-Joël Thiollier.
