PhD student Magdalini Nikolaidou performs works for solo piano by Rakhmaninov.
Tonight’s performance is a complement to Nikolaidou's PhD dissertation on Rakhmaninov’s Études-Tableaux op.33 (1911) and op.39 (1916), viewed under the light of music-centred narrative theories and an interesting musicological theory called intonation. This performance is separated into three parts based on both a diachronic and inter-musical logic. The intention is to illuminate the contextual coherence and illustrate the contextual and narrative arguments underlying the Études-Tableaux.
