Latest Piano Albums


Konstantin Emelyanov:
Over Time – Rameau, Rachmaninoff, Bach

Konstantin Emelyanov's album weaves a tapestry of nostalgia for a Golden Age: in the pianist's words, "an epoch of eternal beauty and purity in which time itself has a completely different meaning". Rameau’s Suite in G functions as a type of prelude, Rachmaninoff’s Variations on a theme of Corelli form the central element, and Bach’s French suite in B minor is a postlude.

In fact, the project took him a further six years. Pianist Nathan Williamson: "Despite unashamedly drawing on a wide spectrum of styles and influences… Brown’s 24 Preludes and Fugues stretched the limits of my ear and musical imagination."
