A student of Rimsky-Korsakov and later a teacher of Rachmaninov, Scriabin and Glière, Anton Arensky was a precocious composer whose youthful Piano Concerto combines Lisztian dramatic bravura with Chopin’s virtuosic lyricism, the 5/4 metre of its final movement finding its way into Tchaikovsky’s Sixth Symphony.

The Symphonic Scherzo is probably also an early work, while the Fantasia on Russian Folksongs (also called Ryabinin Fantasia) of 1899 and To the memory of Suvorov (Pamyati Surova) of 1900, which celebrated General Suvorov’s triumphs in the Russo-Turkish War, are works of Arensky’s maturity.

Penguin Guide

2011 edition

“an ideal way to explore [Arensky's] orchestral music. Not surprisingly, these performances are very Russian in feeling, and after a bold opening both orchestra and the excellent soloist make the very most of the concerto's memorable secondary theme...A most enjoyable collection.”
