Re: Howard Shelley's recordings of SVR

Re: Rachmaninov recordings

Dear everyone, I plan to purchase Rachmaninov's Complete Recordings (10 CDs, RCA Golden Seal) and hope it would fill in the gaps in my collection of CDs featuring Rachmaninov as performer.

Re: Let's celebrate SVR's Birthday!!!

Exactly!!! I like most of all that the man behind him is walking, it makes the picture so alive, as if just few minutes ago shot... A friend of mine (he is a pianist and a prize-winner of Rachmaninoff contests) also gave me a present - a perfect present!!! www*youtube*com/watch?v=QB6-gT-dt18 The mo...

Re: Performance of Rachmaninoff's Concerto No.3 - S.A.TX
