William Kapell. 2 and Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini Shostakovich: 3 Preludes. 24 in D Minor. Composers: Dmitri Shostakovich. The Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Op. 43, is a concertante work written by Sergei Rachmaninoff for piano and orchestra, closely resembling a piano concerto, albeit in a single movement. Rachmaninoff wrote the work at his summer home, the Villa Senar in Switzerland, according to the score, from 3 July to 18 August 1934. Rachmaninoff himself, a noted interpreter of his own works, played the piano part at the piece's premiere on 7 November 1934, at the Lyric Opera House in Baltimore, Maryland, with. The three Shostakovich preludes that appear as fillers work much better as droll, witty modernist music since they are in fact droll, witty modernist music. Particularly effective is the parody of Chopin's Prelude in C sharp minor. Kapell brilliantly catches the work's combination of sarcasm and sentimentality. While not perhaps to all tastes, this is still a great disc. Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No. 2, Rhapsody On A Theme of Paganini Kapell 1950-1951. Prokofiev, S. Piano Concerto No. 3, Khachaturian, A.
