Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Étude-Tableau in A Minor, Op. 39, No. 2. Recorded by Romantic pianist-composer Robert Cunningham on September 26, 2020. In correspondence with fellow composer Ottorino Respighi, Rachmaninoff revealed that the piece was inspired by imagery of the sea and of seagulls, and as one listens one can easily envision seagulls soaring gracefully over the water’s surface. Also pervading the work is the motive of the first four notes of the Dies irae chant, which is heard frequently in Rachmaninoff.
