Sergey Rachmaninoff (1873-1943) a great Russian-American composer and pianist, completed his 10 Preludes op.23 in 1903. They present a wide spectrum of emotions, from exuberant happiness (no.2) to restless desperation (no.7), and everything in between. For this presentation, we chose No.1 - a quiet, pensive contemplation, and No.4, which was written on the day Rachmaninoff’s daughter was born.

 

Ms. Nuller graduated from the St. Petersburg Conservatory, Russia. Since her arrival in the United States in 1990, she has performed extensively as a soloist and chamber musician in the New York metropolitan area and in New England, as well as in Brazil, Russia, Spain, and Portugal. She has been a soloist with the Arkansas Symphony, Danbury Symphony (CT), Klassika Orchestra (St. Petersburg, Russia), Orchestra Temple Beth El (CT), and Chamber Orchestra of Puerto Rico. Ms. Nuller played her debut recital at Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall in New York City as a winner of the Artist International Auditions.
