Notes & Reviews:

A complete collection of Sergei Rachmaninov's symphonies (Nos. 1-3, `The Bells,` `Youth` Symphony) and Piano Concertos (Nos. 1-4 and Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini). Recordings lavishly praised by Gramophone and Penguin Guide. This six-disc set features a constellation of musical luminaries, including: pianists Sviatoslav Richter, Abbey Simon, Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli, and Byron Janis; the London SO, Moscow State SO, St. Louis SO, and Philharmonia Orchestra; and conductors Gennadi Rozhdestvensky, Pavel Kogan, Leonard Slatkin, and Antal Dorati.

Penguin Guide
Richter's Concerto No. 2 `really fits the description of 'legendary recording.

Penguin Guide
Michelangeli Concerto No. 4 `one of the most brilliant piano records ever made.

Gramophone
Kogan symphonies: `Vibrant, soulful and involving... Genuinely compelling, authentically tangy accounts of these masterworks... Impossible to resist.
