 AT LAST!!! April 13, 2015 By Zita Carno (Tampa, FL) See All My Reviews "You know, I've been hearing the Rachmaninoff piano-and-orchestra repertoire on Classical Masterpieces on my TV, and too often what I've been hearing has turned me off---either the performances were blah, or the soloists came on like runaway locomotives. The exception was a series of recordings by one Agustin Anievas, a pianist I have always liked because he makes musical sense all the way. I had been trying to locate these recordings for quite some time, and now I find the full set is available on EMI Classics. So I purchased it, and now I can enjoy Rachmaninoff the way I used to play these concertos, at least #2 and #3; the conductors and the orchestra are superb, and one can hear the notes and the nuances. Ah, sweet mystery of Rachmaninoff, at last I've found you!" Report Abuse
