About

Lang Lang’s complete Rachmaninov recordings, bringing together the DG and the early Telarc recordings, which capture the heart of Russian Romantic music.

Described by The Times as “a marvel, his ease of virtuosity astonishing, his stage presence magnetic”, Lang Lang presents two of Rachmaninov’s favourite concertos (nos. 2 and 3), the dazzlingly virtuosic Paganini Rhapsody and the deeply felt Trio élégiaque, in which he is partnered by Repin and Maisky – plus a spirited performance of the great G minor Prelude.

Rachmaninov playing of real personality” – International Record Review (Second Concerto, Rhapsody).

The recording of Rachmaninov No.3 is from the BBC Proms in London from 2002- a breakthrough performance for the pianist, coupled with a live performance of the Piano Sonata No.2 in B flat minor at Seiji Ozawa Hall, Tanglewood.
