I have adult beginners and early intermediate pianists who who would just love some easy Rach. pieces. They play the Faber Classics series and do well, but I have not found any Rachmaninoff in those books. How about looking into Boosey & Hawkes! not allowed.com/shop/advsearch_results.asp?pg=1&a...

Nice report, mikhailp! I can't believe Hong Xu played the Concerto 2 times in a row! What energy that pianist has! His performance(s) was great, wasn't it! I enjoyed the talk after the concert. It was also nice that audience could participate in the talk by asking questions. Final event of the confe...

Just ordered the CD and it's on the way.
Hopefully I'll get it this week, then I'll let you know what I think!
