 Breathtaking! June 10, 2015 By M. Bowman (Carnegie, PA) See All My Reviews "The Rachmaninov Piano Concerto #2 is one of my favorites in the repertoire. I know it well and have heard many people play it, and Mr. Kissin's interpretation surpasses all the others! I heard it on our local public radio station and immediately Googled and ordered it. I can't listen to it often enough. I'm still working my way through the rest of the CD package piece by piece... the Prokofiev is brilliant... more to come later!" Report Abuse
