This is a selection from the repertoire of one of the most romantic composers ever. His second piano concerto is probably his best-known work. Being a pianist himself Rachmaninoff knew very well how to write virtuoso music for this instrument.
This release consists of mainly of piano music, both solo and with orchestra. Fine performances by the National Symphony of the Ukraine and State Academy Symphony Orchestra of Russia.
Pianists are among others Nikolai Lugansky, Hélène Grimaud and Marietta Petkova. Also included is the Vocalise with Wladislav Warenberg on the cello.
