About

When Sergei Rachmaninov composed his Variations on a Theme of Corelli, he had not published any piano works for over a decade. It was 1931, and though he would live for a further 12 years, it would remain his final work for solo piano, a moody and introspective work reflective of the melancholy that had so often plagued him in his life and career.
