Miniatures of intimate poetry - Sergei Babayan presents new DG album

On 7 August 2020, pianist Sergei Babayan will release his latest solo recording on Deutsche Grammophon: "Rachmaninoff" (as the composer's name is correctly spelled) will present an inimate selection of precious miniatures, including selected Études-Tableaux, Préludes and Moments Musicaux as well as various song transcriptions from Rachmaninoff's own hand. "A small detail, a single bar with a different touch can change the entire piece", said Babayan who works obsessively on the smallest aspects of his interpretations before sharing them with the public. The works selected for his Deutsche Grammophon solo début have accompanied him for many years. Their combination aims at telling a musical tale as in a song cycle of his own.
