Rachmaninoff's 24 Preludes are pianistic masterworks of the highest order. Each prelude expresses the deepest emotions of the Russian master, from ecstatic joy and tolling of bells, to Slavic melancholy and utter tragedy. A unique live recording by Lukas Geniusas, a feat of extraordinary concentration and technical mastery. Played in the big hall of the famous Moscow Conservatory it displays Geniusas' prodigious gifts: supreme control, strong sense of structure and a sincere and warm projection of the human emotions of the music. Lukas Geniusas, winner of the silver medal at the 2015 Tchaikovsky Piano Competition, was born into a family of musicians, (his grandmother was the legendary Vera Gornostaeva) is Silver Medallist of the 2010 Chopin Competition, and first-prize winner of the German Piano Award and the Gina Bachauer Competion.His earlier recording for Piano Classics (PCL0075, Beethoven: Hammerklavier Sonata - Brahms: Piano Sonata 1), received great critical acclaim: "Geniusas not only convinces with energy and virtuosity, he also approaches the massive sound structures with a deep poetic feeling" (Spiegel, Germany).
