Notes & Reviews:

Described as a "poet amongst pianists", Portuguese artist Artur Pizarro presents a new recording of the complete solo piano works of Sergei Rachmaninoff. A former winner of the Leeds Piano Competition, Pizarro offers his listeners a lifetime of love for, and experience with, this music which speaks, as he says, "of the endless variety of the human condition". Tracing Rachmaninoff's development as a composer from the early Nocturnes and his encounters with Tchaikovsky as a teenage student of Nikolai Zverev in the 1880s, to the so-called 'Corelli Variations' of the 1930s, this landmark release shines a new light on every aspect of this remarkable oeuvre. From the famed thunder claps of the C# minor Prelude, via the monumental passion of the two sonatas to the tender lyricism of many of the lesser-known miniatures, Pizarro imbues every page of this music with the fire and feeling for melodic contour for which his playing has become so admired.

American Record Guide, November/December 2015
Pizarro has recorded a seven-disc set of the complete Rachmaninoff piano works. The two releases here contain discs 1-4. The series was recorded from December 2013 to February 2015.

Competition comes from highly esteemed artists. Ashkenazy's 11 CD Decca set (478 6348) was culled from over 40 years of recordings. It includes concertos (Haitink) and works for two and three pianists (Previn, Vovka and Dody Ashkenazy). Decca also has a 32CD box (478 6765) of Rachmaninoff's complete works where Ashkenazy figures prominently (solo piano, conductor, collaborative piano). Biret's 10CD set also includes the concertos (Naxos 501005). Shelley's 1993 8CD Hyperion set has stood the test of time and remains a fine choice.
