Description

This book provides a detailed look at the triumphs and difficulties faced by this great composer, both personal and professional, not often revealed in other sources. This book is noteworthy in that a detailed study of the First Piano Concerto in F No. minor, Op. 1, is included. Applying quantitative analysis as a fundamental approach, this study demonstrates that Rachmaninoff's writing (including the orchestrations) tended toward thinner, more transparent textures, as his style continued to evolve. For the Rachmaninoff enthusiast, this book serves as a convenient source of readings on a variety of topics.
