Rachmaninoff PC.4 + Etude-Tableaux, Op.33 No.3
on: August 26, 2017, 06:16:48 AM
Perhaps another piano fiend has discovered this similarity, but it seems good

Here is Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No.4, Op.40, played by Sir A. Michelangeli, and graciously scored by olla(-)vogala. It is timestamped at 14:30, at the 2nd movement, respectively.


In comparison here is Rachmaninoff's Etude-Tableau Op.33 No.3, played by Н. Луганский, and graciously scored by Ashish Xiangyi Kumar.


Some similarities can be spotted, including general raising dynamic and melodies of the two pieces. However, a conclusion that they are related may be substantiated by the same ending melody notes of their respective passages, 15:05 in the PC.4, and 10:00 in the Etude-Tableau.

Thus, did Rachmaninoff unknowingly orchestrate his Etude-Tableau? Nonetheless, every Rachmaninoff piano piece would have truly been a auditory sight to behold, had he orchestrated them himself.

Also, if you have not already visited the channels that post these beautifully scored videos of their own volition, please do. They are treasures.


Scriabin is an integral ∫; a sum of all mortal worlds.
I have no idea what that particularly means.
