About This Performance

PCMS favorite Cynthia Raim is joined by her longtime piano partner, David Allen Wehr, for a rarely-heard, two-piano, four-hands, all-Rachmaninov program. Lauding the duo’s recording of the Suites for Two Pianos, a Pianoforte critic raved: “Here are two fine artists who sound as if they might have stepped right out of a Russian academy. They allow the composer’s melodies and phrases a natural shape without ever imposing technique on them, with a great feeling of contrast, light and shade.”

Rachmaninov: Suite No. 1 for Two Pianos, Op. 5, Fantaisie tableaux
