Clarion and Steven Fox continue their exploration of Rachmaninoff’s choral works, this time in combination with the stirring Third Piano Concerto performed with Ilya Maximov. Written when Rachmaninoff lived in New York City, the rarely performed 'Folk Songs' is one of the composer’s last major works, both haunting and beautiful.
