Marianne, thanks for the link to Youtube -- Moiseyevich's words about Rachmaninoff. I have had trouble accessing it -- as usual :? But when I have a little more time I will figure out the problem. I still enjoyed typing in Moiseyevich - Rachmaninoff when I arrived at Youtube. He is performing a number of SVR's works. I intend to return to the site to hear all of them.
There is also a kind of forum there, where people can give their opinions of the pianist and the works. Unfortunately, some of the characters excpressing their opinion don't understand music. One questioned why men like Moiseyevich, Rubinstein, and Horowitz could make "mistakes" and people overlooked them, while others (like himself, no doubt) were criticized. :lol: Some other inane comments appeared also. On the bright side, there were good comments too.

Marianne, you really did send me a "pearl" with that Youtube site! I heard several wonderful pianists, including Mdivani, playing a Rachmaninoff Etude. I had never heard that; it is phenominal :!: At first I couldn't get the site, because I typed it next to the Address. However, when I went to Google, there was no trouble. (Do you have the Google search engine in Russia?)
I will return to this wonderful site often. I also heard an enchanting waltz from a piano suite by Arenski. How I love the old recordings!
Opus23#10 :D

I am a fan of the pianist Ossip Gabrilowitsch now. I wish I knew the piano of which company he played...
