A Belated Valentine

Inside Music: A Belated Valentine

The creation of emotional tension and the release of it is a common aesthetic goal among all composers of wordless, abstract music. The moment of greatest emotional intensity in a movement – referred to by Sergei Rachmaninoff as ‘The Point’ – is explored by host George Marriner Maull in Movement II of Rachmaninoff’s extremely romantic Second Symphony.
