Romance in A minor, Op posth.


Several ‘romances’ are found among Rachmaninov’s chamber juvenilia. Noted in Bertensson and Leyda (1965), this one, published in New York over half a century ago from a Moscow manuscript, and subsequently in the USSR, takes the guise of a ternary andante cantabile with a con moto/cadenza episode and an elaborated reprise, the whole framed by a lento prelude and postlude, closing on a tierce de picardie. ‘Influenced by Tchaikovsky’ (Hideko Udagawa).
