The Katherine Jenkins Collection – The Russians
No essential collection of Russian music would be complete without something from Sergei Rachmaninov. It is mostly his piano music that we listen to these days. ‘He was a jaw-droppingly brilliant pianist and that comes through in his own compositions which certainly showed off his own playing to the full,’ says Katherine. In the Rhapsody on a theme of Paganini, he took a famous tune by the great violin virtuoso and turned it into something altogether dazzling and – particularly in the 18th variation – heart-rendingly beautiful.
