Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Legendary Russian pianist Vladimir Ashkenazy is considered the pre-eminent interpreter of Rachmaninov's music, and as he marked his seventy-fifth birthday (6 July 2012), he recorded a final album of the composer's music featuring the Seven Pieces (Moments Musicaux) Op. 10, three Nocturnes, and ten shorter early works, including an unpublished 'Song without Words'.

Of Vladimir Ashkenazy's previous Rachmaninov discs, The Guardian wrote: "An exceptional artist... Ashkenazy presents every piece immaculately", and The Daily Telegraph remarked, ""Ashkenazy's Rachmaninov recordings - whether of the concertos or the mature solo piano works - have long led the field with their balance of contained muscularity and lyrical insight."
