Musician's or Publisher's Notes
In this recital program, we see how early 20th Century Russian
composers influenced the music of American composers of the mid-late 20th
No. 5 in e-flat minor
No. 6 in a minor
No. 8 in d minor
The Rachmaninoff Etudes (1917) represent the Post-Romanticism of the early
Twentieth Century. This is Rachmaninoff stubbornly holding onto the
lyricism and rich tonality of the 19th century Romantic tradition in
the face of the atonal revolution. The Kernis Lullaby (1987) is composed
at the other end of the atonality craze, looking toward a new future that
embraces sensuous harmonic color within a Post-Modern sensibility.
