Weekly Classical Music Recommendation
This past week I had a big exam and so it’s been a little stressful. In light of that here’s a more calm piece (I feel like I’ve been sharing technically exploding and intense pieces so this might be refreshing). Also Suloni mentioned that she likes listening to the music I shared in the morning so this might be more suitable :).
This is a Prelude by Rachmaninov and played by Nikolai Lugansky. I particularly like Lugansky in that he has a very calm and humble demeanor when playing and not too dramatic, but of course still very expressive and musical. I also included a version played by Vladimir Ashkenazy, which is slower and more dramatic / romantic (very Ashkenazy, in my opinion), which I also really like as well.
