Rachmaninoff on Short Notice: Gleb Ivanov and Lonnie Klein
Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 3 is one of the most difficult works in the piano repertoire, so to get a request to perform it in just three weeks can be a daunting challenge. Faced with a last-minute cancelation by his scheduled artist, Lonnie Klein found Gleb Ivanov to stand in and perform the massive work. They came to the KRWG studios on November 30, 2012 talk with Intermezzo host Leora Zeitlin about Rachmaninoff, what makes Russian music “Russian,” and more.
