About

“Sometimes we are afraid to grasp something that exists deep within ourselves. Human beings are afraid of revealing their emotions, they are scared of hurting themselves and becoming defenceless. That is how the unspoken emerges: a secret, a depth which accompanies us throughout our lives. The most important thing about Rachmaninov’s music for me is the fact that it exposes the soul. The emotions in his oeuvre are so clear and true – there is no way of disguising oneself there. When you play Rachmaninov you have to answer questions that you would not normally have dared to pose. In that situation a musician needs to be brave and, in a way, ‘pure in heart’. Only then does the music make sense. A depth emerges. The depth of the unspoken.” - Ekaterina Litvintseva
