Rachmaninov & Prokofiev - Works for Cello and Piano (2016)

Prokofiev, Rachmaninov, Scriabin

Johannes Moser, Andrei Korobeinikov

Rachmaninov and Prokofiev are genius musical storytellers. Both have their own very personal and individual languages, and at the same time they are deeply rooted in the epic Russian tradition. When I immerse myself into their music, images of vast open spaces, Russian tales, folklore and even deft humor spring to my mind. While the Prokofiev Sonata has been on my concert programs for many years, I came relatively recent to the music of Rachmaninov. I always felt this music needed the right partnership in order to work, the piano part being both tremendously demanding and poetic at the same time. Andrej for me embodies all of those qualities, being a true champion of Rachmaninov’s music. Embarking with him on this journey of core Russian repertoire has been so rewarding for me, and I am incredibly proud of our collaboration and the result you have on this new PENTATONE recording.

Johannes Moser

Hailed by Gramophone Magazine as “one of the finest among the astonishing gallery of young virtuoso cellists”, German-Canadian cellist Johannes Moser has performed with the world’s leading orchestras such as the Berlin Philharmonic, New York Philharmonic, Los Angeles Philharmonic, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Munich Philharmonic and Israel Philharmonic Orchestras as well as the Chicago Symphony, London Symphony, Bavarian Radio Symphony, Frankfurt Radio Symphony, Royal Concertgebouw, Tokyo Symphony, Philadelphia and Cleveland Orchestras. He works regularly with conductors of the highest level including Riccardo Muti, Lorin Maazel, Mariss Jansons, Valery Gergiev, Zubin Mehta, Vladimir Jurowski, Franz Welser-Möst, Manfred Honeck, Christian Thielemann, Pierre Boulez, Paavo Jarvi and Semyon Bychkov, Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Gustavo Dudamel.

Known for his efforts to expand the reach of the classical genre, his passionate focus on new music, and his commitment to reaching out to young audiences, Moser aims to present classical music in ways with which listeners of all ages can engage and connect. He was a recipient of the prestigious 2014 Brahms prize, and his recordings have earned him three ECHO Klassik awards and the Jahrespreis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik. In 2015 Moser signed an exclusive contract with PENTATONE, and has released albums with the cello concertos of Dvo?ak and Lalo (2015), works for cello and piano by Rachmaninov and Prokofiev (2016, awarded with a Diapason d’or and ECHO Klassik 2017) and Elgar and Tchaikovsky cello concertos (2017). Born into a musical family in 1979 as a dual citizen of Germany and Canada, Moser began studying the cello at the age of eight. He was the top prize winner at the 2002 Tchaikovsky Competition, in addition to being awarded the Special Prize for his interpretation of the Rococo Variations.

Johannes Moser performs on a 1694 Andrea Guarneri cello, generously on loan from a private collection.
