“Extraordinarily versatile and agile technique, which serves an often inspired musical imagination” (Gramophone)
Rachmaninov’s 24 Preludes are almost entirely in the realms of emotional confession, exploring the poetics of heroic struggle and longing. They make optimal use of the full-size, industrial-strength concert grand piano, enabling it to fill all but the largest concert hall with an illusion of orchestral impact. Even the greatest virtuoso has to rise to their double challenges of athleticism and poetry.
To take them on is celebrated Moscow-born pianist Andrey Gugnin, famous for his virtuoso and passionate interpretation style. The world took notice of his talent after he won both the Gold Medal and the Audience Prize at the 2014 Gina Bachauer Piano Competition, and First Prize at the 2016 Sydney Piano Competition. Since then he has given solo recitals and performed with great ensembles in some of the world’s greatest venues, and built a discography that has swept multiple accolades and awards, including “Recording of the Month” and the Instrumental award by BBC Music Magazine and “Editor’s Choice” by Gramophone.
