Frederick Moyer: Bach: Partita No. 5 in G Major/
Rachmaninoff: Variations on a Theme by Corelli
Bach/Rachmaninoff coverFrederick Moyer shines on his GM recording debut and offers a mature, balanced reading of two cornerstones of the piano literature. 

The Partitas of Bach marked an artistic culmination in the development of their form.  The Variations of Rachmaninoff resembles his immensely popular Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini which followed two years later.

“His Bach is elegant and sparkling...   In the Rachmaninoff Variations, he displays velvety tone, producing mysterious moments contrasted with magisterial virtuosity.”
