Notes and Editorial Reviews

Lang Lang’s complete Rachmaninov recordings, bringing together the DG and the early Telarc recordings.

Lang Lang’s complete Rachmaninov recordings capture the heart of Russian Romantic music: two favorite concertos (nos. 2 and 3), the dazzlingly virtuosic Paganini Rhapsody and the deeply felt Trio elegiaque, in which he is partnered by Repin and Maisky – plus a spirited performance of the great G minor Prelude. “Rachmaninov playing of real personality” – International Record Review (Second Concerto, Rhapsody)
The two favorite Piano Concertos, nos. 2 & 3, No. 3 a live recording from the London Proms,
