Rachmaninov's Op. 39 Etudes-Tableaux were composed after a series of emotionally devastating setbacks. Similarly, Schubert's D. 946 Drei Klavierstucke were completed only months before his own death. The three Schubert pieces are equally well-played from a technical standpoint, but musically are very aggressive at times, making them sound much more like Rachmaninov than Schubert.

Schubert’s Klavierstücke and Rachmaninoff’s Études-tableaux Op. 39: two apparently disparate works but sparkling proof of their composers’ genius, two collections all too often neglected by pianists, and two remarkable works that Alain Lefèvre has held within himself for over twenty years. The intensely lyrical and poetic works of Klavierstücke are a testament to Schubert’s great maturity; and the finely crafted little symphonic poems for piano of the Études-tableaux Op. 39 are like mirrors of Rachmaninoff’s tormented soul.

The Études-Tableaux ("study pictures"), Op. 39 is the second set of piano études composed by Sergei Rachmaninoff. They are even fuller, more finely textured and darker than the first set. The Op. 39 set comprises nine études: No. 1 in C minor. This quick-paced étude demands a tireless right hand, a syncopated left hand and considerable dexterity. Technically, the music is in an almost continual climax. It bears a resemblance to Chopin's Prelude in E-flat minor.

Montreal sensation Alain Lefèvre brings his trademark heart-on-sleeve expressivity to the technical demands of Sergei Rachmaninov's nine Études-Tableaux, Op. His intensity is ideal. It's a mystery how three pieces by Franz Schubert fit into this sonic picture, but Lefèvre plays them with affecting simplicity. There's a bonus download of a sonata by Antonio Soler. Top track: No. 5 in E-flat Minor.

Come the Op 39 Études-tableaux of 1916-17, that harmonic and tonal palette is even broader, at times exploratory and ambiguous, while not straying beyond the bounds that Rachmaninov set himself: ‘I myself could never care to write in a radical vein which disregards the laws of tonality and harmony,’ he declared to The Etude in 1941, ‘nor could I learn t. l’origine, Rachmaninov composa neuf pièces pour le recueil o. 3, mais trois d’entre elles furent retirées avant la publication. Comme il l’écrivit au musicologue Boris Assafiev le 13/26 avril 1917: sont sur mon bureau. Elles ne seront pas publiées.
