Piano Concerto No. 3 by : Peng-Peng Gong : Sergei Rachmaninoff
I have finally decided to re-create the already-daunting “Rach 3” into an even more horrifying but also emotionally satisfying project; which was to make such a large-scale arrangement for solo piano requesting the pianist to combine both the piano and the orchestral accompaniment of Rachmaninoff's original crowning achievement; thus merging an 80-people orchestral sonority onto one person. The process of this project was one of the most artistically educational experiences for me; as I couldn't just take the original score and copy and paste it onto the same instrument; which would've been meaningless and would simply sound like a mess. One has to really work as a sensitive composer to know the differences between the timbres and colors of the piano and that of the orchestra; which requires me to re-arrange registers; minor shifts of structural obstacles; avoidance of over-toned harmonies; and attempt to make it sound like as if it was conceived originally as a grand solo piano sonata instead of just some crazy transcription for showing off. I hope this new version of the “Rach 3” can achieve a different kind of in-depth virtuosity and emotional scope and that it may attract interest from my contemporary and future pianists or musicians.
