Sunday, 15th The Fabulous Samuil Feinberg and Friends: Vivaldi, Bach, Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky

A celebration of one of the finest Russian pianist-pedagogue-composers of the 20th Century, Samuil Feinberg, and a bit of Rachmaninov for good measure.

Vivaldi-Bach-Feinberg transcription of a transcription: Vivaldi Concerto in A minor BWV 593 - absolutely fabulous!
Rachmaninov Etudes Tableaux op 33 nos 1-6
Tchaikovsky-Feinberg transcription of the Scherzo from Tchaikovsky's Symphony no. 6 - absolutely fabulous!
Samuil Feinberg Sonatas number 7, 8 and 9. These are, in my opinion, the finest of the much neglected sonatas of Feinberg.
