When Serge Rachmaninoff heard the famous Caprice in A minor by the mysterious ‘devil’s violinist’ Paganini, he full under the spell of its tonal to-and-fro and swaggering rhythmic shape. In 1934, Rachmaninoff set about examining, twisting, refracting and elaborating the tune into his spectacular Rhapsody that, once finished, proved devilish in the truest sense of the word.
Some 40 years earlier Pyotr Tchaikovsky embarked upon the last creative act of his life – the creation of his overwhelming final symphony. From the gloom of its opening to the unleashing of its fateful torrents, the Symphony was a direct expression of Tchaikovsky’s hopelessness, and arguably the most original since Beethoven’s Ninth.
