Notes and Editorial Reviews
The Mariinsky are proud to bring this classic album to vinyl for the first time. One of the earliest releases on the label, it showcases the talents of Denis Matsuev in Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No 3 and Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. The vinyl edition also includes Matsuev’s 2015 recording of Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No 1. Matsuev is renowned for his interpretations of music by Russian composers and has collaborated with the Serge Rachmaninov Foundation. He was chosen by the Foundation to perform and record unknown pieces of Rachmaninov on the composer’s own piano at the Rachmaninov house on the Villa Senar estate, Lucerne. Winner of the the 11th International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1998, Matsuev has established a reputation as one of Russia’s greatest and most dynamic pianists. He has appeared with many of the world’s leading orchestras and gave his first Carnegie Hall recital in 2007.
