Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Decca) Sergei Rachmaninov – All Piano Concerti (Ashkenazy/Previn)

front-small-boxset
These are brilliant performances of Sergei Rachmaninov’s four piano concertos! Pianist Vladimir Ashkenazy originally recorded them with the London Symphony Orchestra and conductor Andre Previn at Kingsway Hall in London in 1972. Ashkenazy demonstrates superb artistry and musicianship on this box set, playing each concerto with extraordinary warmth and expressiveness. The LSO’s accompaniment is outstanding in both its poetry and precision. I found the slow movement of Concerto No. 3 to be particularly enjoyable for its depth of feeling. The sound is absolutely outstanding, aided by the warm ambience of Kingsway Hall. Awarded a three-star rating (signifying “an outstanding performance and recording in every way,”) by the “Penguin Guide to Compact Discs,” this set should not be missed my any fan of Rachmaninov’s music.

Audiophile HD-Vinyl 24/192 (Decca) Rachmaninov/Dohnanyi – Rhapsody on a theme by Paganini/Variations On A Nursey Tune (Boult/Katchen)

front-small-boxset
Complete new rip with the new rig and in 24/192
This disc couples two recordings made in 1959 at a time when Decca was at the forefront of recording technology. They also had on their rosta of soloists Julius Katchen who was perfectly attuned to these three pieces. Julius Katchen had an interesting combination of Russian heritage, an inexhaustible fund of energy both physical and mental, and a technique that overcame challenges with some apparent ease. This combination led him to make spectacularly exciting recordings of Liszt and these three works all of which respond so very well to his special brand of nonchalant bravura. In this he is also matched by the orchestra and Boult as conductor.
