ARENSKY, A.: Piano Music - 6 Pieces, Op. 53 / Etudes, Opp. 41 and 74 / Pres de la mer (Neiman)

Anton Arensky’s suite-like 6 Pieces reveal his wide-ranging appreciation of musical styles, while both sets of Etudes showcase his melodic gifts and inventiveness, sometimes echoing Chopin’s elevation of mere technical challenge with lyricism and daring harmonies. If the unquiet spirits of Liszt and Schumann can occasionally be heard in the 6 Exercises titled ‘By the Sea’, Arensky’s own musical personality is nonetheless pervasive. A pupil of Rimsky-Korsakov and teacher of Rachmaninov and Scriabin, Arensky’s star swiftly set following his early death only to rise again in recent times.
