Moscow on the Bluff - Concert II: Rachmaninoff Doubled
David Allen Wehr and his duo-piano partner Cynthia Raim present both of Rachmaninoff's Two-Piano Suites, music of incredible lushness, passion and brilliance, offsetting the tart humor of Stravinsky's Octet, with Daniel Meyer conducting eight wind and brass members of the Pittsburgh Symphony (all members of the Duquesne University faculty). Natasha Snitkovsky performs one of her specialties, Khachaturian's virtuosic Piano Sonata, which she studied with the composer, and Guenko Guechev brings his rich, dark bass-baritone to Mussorgsky's evocative and emotional cycle "Songs and Dances of Death."
Before the concert, Natasha Snitkovsky talks with Wehr about musical life, culture and growing up in the Soviet Union.
