Description

On this new hybrid SACD the young Sicilian virtuoso Alessandro Mazzamuto makes his recording debut with three of Sergei Rachmaninov's works for solo piano: the Sonata No. 2 (in its original version from 1913), the five Morceaux de Fantasie, and the Variations on a Theme of Corelli. The Sicilian pianist Alessandro Mazzamuto was the winner of the Lodovici Prize, awarded by Martha Argerich during the 2011 Busoni Competition to the contestant who showed the greatest flair for a recording project: that is to say, originality of performance and the ability to root out and explore the poetic contents of the scores. Sergei Rachmaninov began his Piano Sonata No. 2, op. 36 in Rome in 1910 and completed it in Moscow in 1913. The five Morceaux de Fantaisie, op. 3 were written in 1892 and represent the young composer's first important milestone. The Variations on a Theme of Corelli, op. 42 (1931) is his last significant work for solo piano and one of his most accomplished cycles of variations. Personnel: Alessandro Mazzamuto (piano)
