The virtuoso pianist and composer Sergei Rachmaninov, one of the last great figures of Russian Romanticism, was prone throughout his life to painful bouts of depression. His troubled nature found release in music of flamboyant intensity, combining dazzling, feverish, almost expressionistic passages with perfectly limpid melodies. The emotionally intense Sonata No.2 and the Six Moments musicaux illustrate this perfectly, while encapsulating the composer's very distinctive poetry. After an acclaimed first recording devoted to the Russian School, Jean-Paul Gasparian confirms his impressive command of this repertoire. There is profundity, density and warmth in his playing - qualities perfectly suited to the incandescent lyricism and the ardor and nobility that characterize the works of this Russian composer.

All New Items on flyvintageandvinyl.com are Priced Below MSRP
and do not reflect our in-store prices and are not necessarily in stock at our physical store.
In fact, most items won’t be because we’re a small, family run business and don’t have space to stock nearly 500,000 new titles.

Separate Shopping Carts for New and Used Items
Because new items available on flyvintageandvinyl.com are fulfilled by our distributor and used items available on used.flyvintageandvinyl.com
(via the “Buy Used” button above) are fulfilled by us at our physical store, they require separate shopping carts and checkout procedures.
It’s a minor inconvenience, but we’ll try to make it worth your while with our selection, ultrasonic-cleaned used records and competitive prices.
Shipping within the U.S. is $5 for the first LP plus 50¢ for each additional LP via USPS Media Mail.
