Sergei Rachmaninoff's "Suites for 2 Pianos & Songs Transcriptions" unveils a captivating musical journey, skillfully brought to life in this recording.
The collection includes the hauntingly beautiful "Vocalise" from Op. 34, a vocal masterpiece without words that showcases Rachmaninoff's ability to evoke deep emotions solely through melody. Moving to Op. 21, "Where the Beauty Dwells" unfolds with enchanting lyricism, painting a musical portrait of serene beauty.
In Suite No. 1, Op. 5, Rachmaninoff weaves a tapestry of emotions through movements like the dreamy "Barcarolle," the passionate "E la nuit... l'amour," the introspective "Les larmes," and the lively "Pasqua." The charm continues with Op. 14's "The Little Island," a miniature gem expressing poignant simplicity.
Op. 4's "In the Silence of the Secret Night" from the 6 Romances captivates with its profound lyricism, showcasing Rachmaninoff's gift for crafting melodies that linger in the listener's soul. The journey concludes with Suite No. 2, Op. 17, featuring the evocative "Introduction," the graceful "Valse," the tender "Romance," and the spirited "Tarantella." Each piece reveals Rachmaninoff's brilliance in crafting expressive and emotionally resonant compositions, leaving an indelible mark on the listener's musical experience.

Giorgia Tomassi, born in Naples, honed her piano skills under her mother's guidance and completed her artistic development at the Accademia Pianistica Incontri col Maestro in Imola, guided by Franco Scala. In 1992, she achieved first prize in the prestigious Arthur Rubinstein Competition in Tel Aviv. Her illustrious career has taken her to renowned venues across Europe, the USA, South America, and Asia, including La Scala in Milan, Wigmore Hall in London, and Santa Cecilia Auditorium in Rome. Giorgia has left a lasting mark with her recordings, including Chopin Etudes and Nino Rota's piano concertos for EMI, the latter performed with the Filarmonica della Scala under Riccardo Muti. She has also collaborated with Salvatore Accardo for Fonè recordings. In the chamber music realm, Giorgia has shared the stage with luminaries like Martha Argerich, Salvatore Accardo, and Gabriele Pieranunzi. Her regular participation in the Lugano Progetto Martha Argerich underscores her prominence in the classical music world.

Perosi" Conservatory, Griguoli is renowned for co-founding The PianoS Trio.
