 Arensky and Rachmaninoff May 1, 2013 By James Raney (San Francisco, CA) See All My Reviews "I purchased thsi album mainly to get the Arensky 'Valse' for 2 pianos, but got more than I could imagine. The music is wonderful, the performances exhuberant and eye opening...Rachmaninoff, Khatchaturian, and others have added to my knowledge and experience." Report Abuse
