An Early Evening Stroll

tue 19 jul 2022 19:00 

Russian composer Anton Arensky (1861-1906).

Every third Tuesday of the month on ‘An Early Evening Stroll’, we explore the oeuvre of the almost forgotten Russian Romantic composer Anton Arensky (1861-1906). His most famous pupil was Rachmaninoff, who dedicated five piano pieces to his teacher. One of them became so famous that the other four were all but forgotten, too. We will be listening to one of them today; a moving elegy. In addition, a colourful mix of genres from Arenski’s oeuvre: a solemn cantata, a virtuoso suite for two pianos, three poetic pieces for choir – featuring the cello – and some piano pieces.
