HD-Vinyl 192/96/44 (Columbia) Sergeji Rachmaninov – Piano Concerto No. 2 (Entremont/Bernstein)

A great THANK YOU to Jean-Luc for this gem
Rachmaninov’s 2nd Piano Concerto is beautifully rendered by Entremont/Bernstein using great technique, patience, and control: in particular during the ‘Adagio’ as Bernstein wrings each orchestral note for all it’s worth, heightening the emotions wrought by Mr Entremont’s artistry. Then comes the beauty and intensity of the ‘Allegro’ (with it’s 3 beautiful passes through the theme which inspired popular music’s “Full Moon and Empty Arms” ramping up the intensity and density with each pass) with Entremont brilliant both there and in the cadenza. Considering Rachmaninov’s melancholy mood about the results of his first piano concerto, he more than recovered from it with this amazing “tour de force” composition and others. Absolutely brilliant and evocative, as presented here! The sound and presence are excellent. Bravo, Philippe and Lennie, and ladies and gentlemen of the orchestras! My Highest Recommendation!
