Adolf Barjansky was born in Odessa into a wealthy Russian-Jewish family, and received his musical education in Vienna, Paris and Leipzig, studying piano with Carl Reinecke and Salomon Judassohn. Barjansky composed relatively few works, but his highly attractive and original piano music reveals the influence of Schubert, Beethoven and Brahms with a wealth of Russian colour, as heard in the Fantasy Pieces. The 6 Piano Pieces are impressionistic and radiant, while the large-scale Piano Sonata No. 1 uses spatial sound as a principal means of expression, blending it with a highly modern simplicity and transparency of structure that anticipates 20th-century minimalism. © Grand Piano Records

Let’s be clear. This album offers piano transcriptions mostly by other pianists and composers of works by Rachmaninov – since the title Rachmaninov rare piano transcriptions could be understood in different ways. The main body of works transcribed are Romances, i.e. the Russian counterpart of the German Lied, the English artsong and the French mélodie, songs with piano accompaniment. The public is widely used to those made by Liszt of Schubert Lieder, but indeed the Romances by Rachamninov as transcribed by Alexander Siloti (1863-1945, himself a Tchaikovsky pupil, like Rachmaninov), Alexandrer Schafer (1866-1914, transcriber for a great Russian publisher), Isaak Mikhnovsky (1914-1978, concert pianist, quite specialized in transcriptions of all kinds, among which opera fantasies and romance-rewriting), Dimitri Paperno (born 1929, a concert pianist who won the 1955 Chopin Competition in Warsaw), and Sergey Kursanov (1947- 2006, another pianist famous for his virtuoso transciptions), are a rare fare. The album also features a few of Rachmaninov’s own transcriptions of his romances, as well as – another rarity – his piano reduction (unearthed in 2002) of the Suite he wrote back in 1891 and proudly showed his beloved teacher Tchaikovsky. And who wouldn’t recognize in the first notes the accents of his very Second piano concerto? © SM/Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet
Tchaikovsky wrote over 100 lyric art songs or Romances, a sequence of diaries of the soul that embrace moods from euphoria to despair. They were unusually important to him, and he, or his editors, commissioned piano transcriptions by eminent musicians such as Laub and others, all of which were revised by Tchaikovsky. These poetic and melodically beautiful songs, many of which are here recorded for the first time, include the ravishing None but the Lonely Heart and reveal a ‘new’ body of Tchaikovsky’s piano repertoire. The album concludes with a Fantasy on themes from "Eugene Onegin" by the Austrian composer and pianist Carl Frühling. © Grand Piano
