 Rachmaninov’s 2nd Piano Sonata was extensively revised by the composer in 1931 and the revised version is tighter and thinner in texture (the 4th piano concerto is a fine example of the more
restrained and less opulent textures the composer developed in his later years) than the original version of 1913.
 It represents a supreme challenge to the pianist in either version and has all the hallmarks of the composer at the height of his powers - he had just finished his huge choral symphony ‘The Bells’ at the same time.
 The 6 Moments Musicaux Op.16 are early works which exhibit the flamboyance of the youthful virtuoso. Sonya Bach includes three of the
Preludes from the Op.23 set.
