No instrument better fits the elegiac, melancholy mood of Rachmaninoff’s music than the Violoncello. And even if Rachmaninoff composed only one major work for the instrument, the famous Cello Sonata, the composer would return to the cello several times more, making arrangements of his other works, to exploit the cello’s rich, thoughtful sound qualities. David Geringas is among the greatest living cellists in the world, equally at home in playing the Bach unaccompanied Suites as he is in performing the music of our time. In his homage to Rachmaninoff, represented by the current CD program, is a celebration of the beauty of his instrument.
