Rachmaninov and Prokofiev are genius musical storytellers. Both have their own very personal and individual languages, and at the same time they are deeply rooted in the epic Russian tradition. When I immerse myself into their music, images of vast open spaces, Russian tales, folklore and even deft humor spring to mind. While the Prokofiev Sonata has been on my concert prgrams for many years, I came relatively recent to the music of Rachmaninov. I always felt this music needed the right partnership in order to work, the piano part being both tremendously demanding and poetic at the same time. Andrej for me, embodies all of those qualities, being a true champion of Rachmaninov's music. Embarking with him on this journey of core Russian repertoire has been so rewarding for me, and I am incredibly proud of our collaboration and the result you have on this new recording. - Johannes Moser "I met Johannes around two and a half years ago for a very special programme dedicated to the cello and piano repertory of the 20th century. We discovered that our ensemble is very equal so we discuss everything very openly. I really like that becasue for me it's not really interesting, for example, just to follow or when the soloist is following my ideas only. I've had such experiences before but here it's because you're working together, you create a new image together. And because we found the passion in each other's playing, we decided to do anothe rprogramme. I think this programme really fits us both perfectly. Rachmaninov and prokofiev, such Russian music! Amazing that both partst are so 'solo-tastic' but so much together. I thought, 'Yes, we should do it!'" - Andrei Korobeinikov
