RACHMANINOV (THE BEST OF) (Naxos: 8.556682)



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
The music of Rachmaninov is still among the most popular in the concert repertoire, the Second Piano Concerto, used as the concerto for 'pop' classic programmes. The performance by Jenö Jandó has been one of the top selling Naxos discs since it was issued seven years ago. Gramophone described as \One of the finest Rachmaninov discs in the CD catalogue".



Yet it was, rather to Rachmaninov's annoyance, that his name became best known as the composer of the Prelude in C sharp minor, thrillingly played here by Idil Biret, and described by Classic CD as "more stunning CDs by Idil Biret".



For demonstration quality sound just go to track 7 with the excerpt from the Symphonic Dances, described by the American Record Guide as "one if the best versions available at any price".



The brilliant German pianist, Bernd Glemser, is responsible for the Third Concerto, a performance of pulsating excitement described by CD Review as "by any standards a notable achievement". We could go on blowing our proverbial trumpet, with accolades for every one of the discs included in this generous compilation playing for over 75 minutes.
