UTRO (Morning), the Rachmaninov's artsong, performed by Rozalina Gutman, as transcribed by Arcadi Volodos for piano solo. (Visit www.Volodos.com for more info re. his live performances and recordings.) The art of Arcadi Volodos, one of the world's most prominent pianists, is rarely praised for being generously infused with the expression of KINDNESS. Both his performances of renown piano repertoire and his own breathtaking compositions/transcriptions do not need introduction to the classical piano admirers. And yet, only a few of those, who belong to his close circle of friends are lucky to know that his prolific gift of being able to touch the hearts of the audiences goes far beyond his magical and almost "bewitchingly" limitless technique. but, his greatest power of connecting to his listeners comes from the depth of his soul, attuned to the Universe, calling to serve the Music with the dedication, comparable only to the religion. Arcadi Volodos can be rightfully called as one of those few one-of-the-kind pianists, who carries into the future the world's highest accomplishments of the "Golden Age" in piano expression, as established by the renown Russian Piano School, continuing the legacy of such greats like Horowitz and Rachmaninov.
Volodos' affinity for Rachmaninov's music is evident from both most demanding large canvases (such as his award-winning recording of Rachmaninov's 3rd Piano Concerto), and his dedication to familiarize the large audiences with the composer's miniature gems that are rarely performed in public, despite their wealth of nuanced beauty, compositional craft and imagination.
This fusion of talents serves as the great source of gratitude for the inspiration to many other musicians to embark on the quest for their own personal interpretations of their masterpieces.
