Notes & Reviews:

"The latest recording of Rachmaninov's Second Concerto, is right up there with the best in a highly competitive field. This is playing that constantly grabs you by the lapel and looks you searchingly in the eye. There is a lovely sense of fantasy too in the rippling triplets of the Adagio: a feeling even here that emotion can barely be contained. Grimaud gives wonderfully expressive performances of several solo pieces, including the Corelli Variations." ***** - Barry Millington BBC
