Is that seriously Rachmaninov performing? I've heard thats actually Benno MOISEIWUTSCH in 1944...

Don't worry if you can't view the clips, you're not missing out on much...
1 and 2 are just commentary on his music and the 3rd is just a performance of Piano Concerto No.2(few seconds of the 3rd movement), supposely by Moiseiwutsch.

I have seen a short clip of an old looking Rachmanionoff playing one of the chopin polonaises on a bbc documentary about concert pianists

It does not look like Rachmaninoff to me. Maybe Rubinstein?

I think you are right. Rachmaninoff's hair was never that long in his older years. :o

Well, I was finally able to watch the clips (pretty cool, thanks :D ). And, I would whole-heartedly agree that it does not look like Rachmaninov. I am kinda wondering why anybody thought it was in the first place ? :D

That's definitely Moiseiwitsch behind that piano. I am not sure how anyone can confuse those two unique faces and physique.

Nice recording though, Moiseiwitsch, another genius, no wonder Rachmaninoff admired him much and had referred to him as his "spiritual heir."

Of course Rachmaninoff admired Moiseiwitsch as well as Hofmann to whom he dedicated his 3rd Piano Concero, although Hofmann never played it.

I had a piano teacher in 2nd grade that had actually seen Rachmaninoff perform live when she was a kid - so lucky! We need a time machine.

By the way, does anybody know if I could get his plaster hand like the one shown in the movie "Shine". I would like to get one.

Have a nice day, all!
