New Non-MCPS recording of the super nostalgic yearning of Rachmaninoff’s ‘Vocalise’ – played here on violin.
The haunting melody was originally written for soprano in 1915 – but with no words – just the ‘ah…’ sound. Perhaps words not needed….
Rachmaninoff left Russia soon after to live in Switzerland and then Beverly Hills California.
Violin: Jonathan Slatter
And …if you need just the accompaniment to practise against, we have also recorded a ‘minus one’ version
