ANTON ARENSKY – SUITES FOR TWO PIANOS

ANTON ARENSKY - SUITES FOR TWO PIANOS,, performed by Lavrova/Primakov Duo

Little known today, Anton Arensky (1861-1906) was one of the brightest stars of the late 19th century Russian music scene and was one of the most influential figures in the promotion of two-piano music. Arensky’s two-piano Suites are models of the romantic duo piano literature and like all the best examples of two-piano music, Arensky’s Suites make no compromises on the technical demands made of the performers. Anton Arensky's influence as a pianist, a composer, a conductor and a remarkable teacher to such future luminaries as Rachmaninov, Gretchaninov and Scriabin—has earned him a place of distinction in the history of Russian music.

This release celebrates Arensky’s 150th Birth Anniversary.
