About

This classic recording is being pressed to vinyl for the first time. Originally the label’s fourth release, it showcases the talents of acclaimed pianist Denis Matsuev in Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto no.3 and the Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.

Matsuev is renowned for his interpretations of music by Russian composers and has collaborated with the Serge Rachmaninov Foundation. He was chosen by the Foundation to perform and record unknown pieces of Rachmaninov on the composer’s own piano at the Rachmaninov house on the Villa Senar estate, Lucerne.

Winner of the the 11th International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1998, Matsuev has established a reputation as one of Russia’s greatest and most dynamic pianists. He has appeared with many of the world’s leading orchestras and gave his first Carnegie Hall recital in 2007.

“Here, for once, is the level of artistry that the work needs...” - BBC Music Magazine *****

“Matsuev holds that most titanic of piano concertos in a passionate embrace, lavish with his rubato, devastatingly certain in his articulation, sensitive to colour and balance.” - The Sunday Times****

“What a pianist... Denis Matsuev is a phenomenon...” - Classics Today
