Overview

Johannes Moser cello
Andrej Korobeinikov piano
Prokofiev Adagio from Cinderella
Rachmaninov Cello Sonata Op.19
Rachmaninov Vocalise
Prokofiev Cello Sonata Op.119

The achingly beautiful, haunting lyricism of early Rachmaninov and the soaring effusiveness of late Prokofiev are brought together by German-Canadian cellist Johannes Moser and the Russian pianist Andrei Korobeinikov in this special recital. Composed during troubled periods in the composers’ lives, the cello sonatas are life-affirming works. Rachmaninov’s arresting sonata is not unlike his perennially popular Second Piano Concerto: a journey from brooding melancholy to untrammelled joy, with a transcendentally beautiful slow movement.

Prokofiev wrote his outstanding sonata while labouring under considerable hardship. It is by turns restrained and movingly lyrical, but the hair-raising final movement with its bravura passagework ends the work in a blaze of defiance. “Both Rachmaninov and Prokofiev are genius musical storytellers,” Moser said in a recent interview. “Both have their own very personal and individual language, but they are at the same time deeply rooted in the epic Russian tradition.”
