Notes & Reviews:

Sergei Rachmaninoff was among the greatest pianists and composers of his generation and his Piano Concerto No. 2 has remained one of the most popular and challenging works for pianists worldwide. It is often at the top of classical music radio station listeners polls. Although Hummel is not a composer who immediately springs to mind from the classical era, he was a popular composer and conductor in his lifetime. An excellent pianist, he was also a friend of Beethoven and Geothe.
