Notes & Reviews:

Howard Shelly is celebrated for his interpretations of the music of Rachmaninov, and his performances of these famous works are both fresh and full of insight. Chandos made many famous recordings with the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, of which this is among the very best. This two disc set is available for the first time at the price of one full price CD.
