Arensky Composers - Ignored and Almost forgotten!

Another almost unknown almost forgotten composer

I stumbled upon Anton Arensky when I went to a concert in my local small town. While introducing this piece, the pianist in the trio mentioned that Arensky taught Scriabin and Rachmaninoff. My ears perked up!

It so happened that my wife Tricia had painted the violinist and entered the painting in a prestigious Australian  art prize. We took it along and showed Niki.

So many ignored and forgotten great composers. Now with the internet we all can find them much more easily!
