Ashkenazy!

The Ashkenazy and Previn recording has much to be admired also.
Very fast tempi but the music does not lack at all. I especially like their taste in sharing and passing melodies!

I heard that he actually played on that recording roll thing twice where his piano key movements were recorded. Isnt that how we have most of his recordings today? Sort of shows how fast and with which attack he played different notes.

Diary

Does there exist a Rachmaninoff diary? I always wondered if there was anything that would help one find out exactly what the composer himself was going through when he wrote certain peices, like the first piano concerto.
