Notes & Reviews:

This third volume of the Sergio Fiorentino Edition on PianoClassics features a fine selection of the master's Rachmaninoff recordings: the complete Preludes (recorded in one day!) dates from the 60s, and shows vocal-quality fluency, staggering virtuosity and musical taste reminiscent of the Golden Age of Pianism. The piano sonatas are recording from the 80s, a part of the "Berlin Recordings", a testimony of great artistry. Also included are a generous selection of Rachmaninoff transcriptions.

American Record Guide, November/December 2014
Fiorentino belongs to a very elite group of master pianists, and anyone who enjoys the music of Rachmaninoff needs to hear this recording. The booklet offers a six-page biography of the artist along with a very well written essay on the music.
