Notes and Editorial Reviews

This selection is a Hybrid Multichannel Super Audio CD. The Stereo Hybrid SACD program can be played on any standard compact disc player. The DSD Surround and Stereo programs require an SACD player for playback.

"Here are his sterling performances of Rachmaninoff's Concerto No. 2 and Paganini Rhapsody recorded September 1974 with the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Eliahu Inbal. These are broad-scale performances, sensitively played with plenty of pianistic fireworks. The closing bar of the Paganini Rhapsody is perfect in its whimsy—just about the best I've heard."

--Robert Benson, classicalcdreview

"Can't say I approached this disc with great enthusiasm. But before
Read more the first movement was over I was sold on both a thrilling performance and outstanding 4.0 sound - right up to Pentatone's highest standards in all their multichannel SACDs, whether from new or older source material."

--John Sunier, audiophile audition
