Simply put, if not the finest, this certainly is one of the finest complete recordings of Rachmaninoff's Preludes available. Weissenberg's musicianship, intuitive prowess, and flawless technical command of these remarkably difficult pieces throughout is astounding. In the numerous complex passages where Rachmaninoff creates the subtlest and most colorful sonorities especially, Weissenberg's deft, seemingly effortless articulation rivals Rachmaninoff's own performances. And don't let the late 1960's recording date deter you- the sound is remarkably good.
Was will man mehr: Ein Glas Wein, entspannen, und in weite russische Landschaften davonfliegen.
I own many recordings of the Rachmaninoff Piano Preludes; however, Alexis Weissenberg's playing of them is the very best. The thunderous ones are delivered with jaw-dropping bravura and the tender ones are delivered with great emotional depth coming from his very soul. You won't believe Alexis' technique.
Many pianist have complained that Rachmaninoff's piano works are almost unplayable due to the fact they were written for Rachmaninoff himself whose hands were physically enormous. I can remember many years ago an interview with a world famous pianist that had just recorded the Preludes and he was almost in tears recounting the demands of the works he had just recorded. Well, from listening to Weissenberg?s recording, I don't think he shed any tears over the demands of the works. His playing is truly exciting in every way.
If you want to hear the Rachmaninoff Preludes played as no one else can play them, buy this disc.
