Shaded Bough and Silvered Bough are contrasting slow movements, one dark and luminous, the other a free variation of Swinging Bough and using the brighter, upper registers of the keyboard. The whole new work was conceived for Kenneth Hamilton and the third, fourth and fifth pieces were written especially for him.

This is a rare opportunity to hear Rachmaninov’s two monumental piano sonatas performed in the same recital. The expansive First Sonata is the longest and most elaborate of all Rachmaninov’s works for solo piano and is seldom played publicly; it was composed mainly in 1907, shortly before the Third Concerto, and shares some of the features of that work.

‘The garden of joy and sorrow is a one-movement piece for harp, flute and viola. It was conceived under the strong influence of two directly contradictory literary phenomena: 1) the work “Sayat-Nova” by Iv Oganov (Moscow), about the famous Eastern story-teller and singer, and 2) verses by the 20th century German poet Francisco Tanzer. Vivid Eastern color was counterposed to a typically Western consciousness. But both of these works had significant inner similarities: their contemplativeness and refinement.’ Sophia Gubaidulina
