Notes and Editorial Reviews

Daniil Trifonov presents a cycle of Sergei Rachmaninov's highly virtuosic Piano Concertos. Recorded with Yannick Nezet-Seguin and the Philadelphia Orchestra, the orchestra with which Rachmaninov himself famously recorded the set of concerti over 80 years ago. The two-part Journey with Rachmaninov begins with DESTINATION RACHMANINOV - DEPARTURE, including the great Piano Concerto No. 2, probably Rachmaninovs best-loved work, paired with the equally beautiful and rarely performed 4th Concerto. These voluminous works are contrasted with a taste of Rachmaninov the master miniaturist, with solo piano transcriptions of Bach's Partita in E Major.
