For his fourth CD, Alexander Krichel chose one of the most famous piano concertos of the late Romantic period. With the Dresden Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Michael Sanderling, he plays Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, which with its passionate, poetic music and irresistible melodies is probably still his most popular work today. Charmingly combined with Rachmaninoff’s multifaceted Moments musicaux op. 16 for solo piano – their name was inspired by Franz Schubert’s collection of musical miniatures of the same name – Alexander Krichel presents a programme that places the highest demands on the performer, both technically and artistically.
