 Disappointing-only excerpts of great works December 4, 2014 By R. Wesr (Henderson, NV) See All My Reviews "I oredered this CD expecting full versions of all the works included in the listing. All I got was excerpts. Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini only included a couple of minutes of one variation. Only one movement of Piano Concerto #2 wsa included. These limitations were not apparent from the online catalog listing. I cannot recommend this CD for lovers of Rachmaninov. Buy separate CDs of those works you want full versions of. This CD is like the headlines without the full story. Very disappointing." Report Abuse
