About The Artist

Following his performance on this year’s Tchaikovsky Spectacular, Denis Matsuev returns with another dose of the Russian master and his 20th-century cohorts. Tchaikovsky was commissioned for a set of pieces to celebrate each month of the year at a time when he was “very much in the mood for piano pieces”—and it showed in the poetic and evocative result, The Seasons. November was a favorite of Rachmaninoff, who is also featured on the program along with Stravinsky.
