I am seeking to hire two expert classical pianists to perform a two-piano classical work, "Rachmaniana" by composer Jacob Weinberg (1879-1956). It is a tribute to Rachmaninoff.
Seeking two pianists who can occupy the same studio with two pianos, or do so from separate rooms on Zoom whether in Manhattan or anywhere else in the world, and play it and it will be recorded on video and posted on YouTube.
You will each get $500 honorarium and full credit on the album. The audio will be released as a CD Baby album. I have produced two other albums of JW's works: 'The PIoneers of Palestine" and "Sonata for Two Pianos". The latter was recorded by Adam Rothenberg who, remarkably, played both piano parts and recorded them together on his Yamaha Hybrid piano. He was not available for the two-piano "Rachmaniana" project so I am seeking two pianists here or one who might want to undertake both parts for $1000. Jacob Weinberg played this piece with his peer Emil Rosenov on their concert tour of Russia in 1910-1912. They performed in Moscow, Kiev, Odessa, and other cities. You can check out JW's bio, which I wrote on Amazon, "Jacob Weinberg, Musical Pioneer". Some of his works can be seen on YouTube. Check out "Quintet", "Canzonetta", "Maypole", etc. His works are still being recorded and played around the world. Check out his Wikipedia page.
Weinberg was a prolific Russian-trained composer and concert pianist who wrote over 135 works.
I am a producer of JW's works and live in Manhattan. My cell # is: 347-729-8292 and my email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
