Notes and Editorial Reviews
"Anyone already keen on Rachmaninov’s piano concertos and symphonies will find plenty to enjoy in his solo piano music. Stretching from his early but already characteristic C sharp minor Prelude to the Corelli Variations of 1931, they display his usual craftsmanship and refinement and stem from the same, typically nostalgic emotional world as his better-known orchestral works. The American pianist Ruth Laredo recorded his complete work in this genre...Those seven LPs have now been remastered on to five CDs and released to mark the 50th anniversary of the composer’s death. The sound has come up vividly (if a little synthetically) in the transfers, allowing us to appreciate these fine, idiomatic interpretations. The pair of virtually
symphonic sonatas come across in all their full-blooded glory..."
