Review By James Inverne,Gramophone,September 2011

Even as the much-hailed Rachmaninov piano concertos set from Leif Ove Andsnes is still green in the memory, here a very fine rival cycle (albeit the couplings are different) is completed. The two are complementary—as reviewer Geoffrey Norris put it to me, “Trpceski is the more passionate, Andsnes the more considered”. Get both!

Review By Geoffrey Norris,Gramophone,September 2011

A pianist and conductor who were surely born to play Rachmaninov’s concertos

Trpceski, Petrenko and the RLPO here join forces for the eagerly awaited follow-up to their Avie recording of Rachmaninov’s Second and Third Piano Concertos (4/10). Expectations are fully realised in performances of the highest order. Listening to the earlier disc, it was clear that Trpceski was put on this earth to play this music and Petrenko to conduct it. The RLPO’s sound has been finely fashioned to Rachmaninov’s needs; it phrases with a breadth, warmth and sensibility that form an ideal counterpart to the piano’s solo role.
