Notes & Reviews:

Lang Lang's complete Rachmaninov recordings, bringing together the DG and the early Telarc recordings. Lang Lang's complete Rachmaninov recordings capture the heart of Russian Romantic music: two favorite concertos (nos. 2 and 3), the dazzlingly virtuosic Paganini Rhapsody and the deeply felt Trio élégiaque, in which he is partnered by Repin and Maisky - plus a spirited performance of the great G minor Prelude. The two favorite Piano Concertos, nos. 2 & 3 No. 3 a live recording from the London Proms, 2002 - a breakthrough performance for the pianist No. 2 coupled with the Paganini Rhapsody, with Valery Gergiev conducting the Mariinsky Orchestra Plus the Trio élegiaque with Repin and Maisky and a rip-roaring performance of the popular Prelude in G minor.

The Times
Lang Lang is a marvel, his ease of virtuosity astonishing, his stage presence magnetic.

International Record Review
Rachmaninov playing of real personality.
