Notes & Reviews:

Xiayin Wang presents her second disc of Rachmaninoff piano works, playing the two piano sonatas alongside three of the op. 23 Preludes. Of the first volume, Gramophone remarked that it featured 'playing of an awesome clarity and poise' (Gramophone Choice). Xiayin Wang plays the 1931 revision of the Piano Sonata No. 2 here, in which Rachmaninoff cut some 120 bars from the original as well as toning down some virtuosic extravagances and creating clearer textures.
