About

All of Rachmaninov’s music - from his earliest student compositions to his final masterpieces – has been collected together for the first time on 32 CDs, in what is definitively the most complete and comprehensive edition of Rachmaninov’s works ever released.

The collection even includes the popular and treasured recordings made by Rachmaninov himself - The Ampico Recordings. These are recordings from piano rolls of Rachmaninov as a pianist, featuring many small works and transcriptions made between 1919 and 1929.

Five CDs in the set are dedicated to the works that secured Rachmaninov his household name – the Piano Concertos. Four legendary recordings of the Piano Concertos are here, with different pianists:
o No.1 - Byron Janis
o No.2 - Sviatoslav Richter
o No.3 - Martha Argerich
o No.4 - Zoltán Kocsis
Plus the 2001 recording of the original versions of Piano Concertos Nos 1 and 4, performed by Alexander Ghindin (licensed from Ondine). Further rarities include the original 1913 version of Piano Sonata No.2.

Vladimir Ashkenazy’s famous recordings of all Four Piano Concertos with the London Symphony Orchestra and Andre Prévin are included: “From Ashkenazy, every page declares Rachmaninov’s nationality, his indelibly Russian nature… Prévin works hand in glove with his soloist… the product of the greatest musical sympathy.” (Gramophone)

The set benefits from Decca’s enormously distinguished artist roster and includes performances by many of the 20th century’s great interpreters. The artistic backbone of the set is provided by Vladimir Ashkenazy. Considered the pre-eminent interpreter of Rachmaninov’s music, Ashkenazy has championed it since the outset of his career, and he is the only musician to record all of the composer’s piano works.

In this set, he is also heard as accompanist (notably with soprano Elisabeth Söderström in three CDs of Songs), but also as conductor of the Concertgebouw Orchestra.
