Rachmaninov: The Edison Recordings, April 1919: Pianists - Solo Piano Recordings, Vol. 4



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Rachmaninov was obliged to start a new life after abandoning all his possessions
when leaving Russia for good in 1917. He sought his fortune in the New
World, supporting his family as a pianist and giving numerous concerts. This
activity generated interest from fledgling record companies, and before long
Rachmaninov was working for Thomas Edison in his New York studio. These
new transfers of ‘approved’ and ‘held’ takes made using the old acoustic process
known as ‘hill-and dale’ reveal more about the instrument Rachmaninov played
(probably a Lauter piano) than ever before, as well as opening out his robustly
virtuoso approach to Chopin, the beautiful tone he gives to Mozart, and his
breathtaking technique in Liszt’s Hungarian Rhapsody No. 2, the longest solo
work he ever recorded.
