DERGEI RACHMANINOV
Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No. 3 and solo piano works
Arcadi Volodos (piano) / Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, James Levine

[ Sony Classics / CD ]

Release Date: Monday 15 October 2018

"So many things about it are distinguished and thrilling. The flowing tempo of the opening bars and the subtle assertion of soloistic presence augur well....Levine ensures that the following orchestral transition keeps moving (how often conductors wallow here and break the back of the structure). Otherwise Volodos's phrasing is consummately tasteful, all the way through to the cadenza. His textures are superbly graded, his tone never glaring, even under the pressure of torrents of notes." Gramophone
