Bach and Rachmaninoff: The Intellectual and The Romantic
Sat, December 12, 2020 6:00 PM, EST
Siyumeng and I hope you will be able to join us in our second Groupmuse together. We will be playing keyboard works by Bach and Rachmaninoff, some obscure and some popular. All of them, however, are masterpieces that you will surely enjoy!
In addition to the wonderful music we would love to share with you, we are especially excited to collaborate with our host and long-time Groupmuser Ulkar Aghayeva for the first time through Groupmuse. The Rachmaninoff set, "Moments Musicaux", Op. 16, represents various musical forms of the Classical and Romantic eras, and we will accompany them with selected translations of Russian poetry of the 19th - 20th centuries.
As I've mentioned in our last Groupmuse, we are always hoping to improve our setup as much as possible to ensure you have an exciting experience. To view our last Groupmuse, please check out the YouTube link here (no black borders next time!):
