Russian Gold III: A Russian ‘Old New Year’s Eve’”
cellist Sergey Antonov,
pianist Ilya Kazantsev
The all-Russian program features two longer pieces
— Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Sonata in G minor for Piano and Cello,
— Nikolai Myaskovsky’s Cello Sonata No. 2 in A minor
— as well as several shorter works by Rachmaninoff and Tchaikovsky.
“It’s a very, very Russian program,” Antonov said. “When you think of Russian music, Rachmaninoff always pops up; it’s international, like we are. The ‘Sonata’ is an enormous joy to perform and to hear. And Myaskovsky’s work is almost folkloric, filled with the spirit of Russia. It’s Russian soul music.”
