Review By Gonzalo Pérez Chamorro,Ritmo,November 2014

No todo el Rachmaninov interpretado por el propio Rachmaninov alcanza el mismo alto nivel que las interpretaciones de este disco, que posiblemente sean el mejor recuerdo del pianista antes que del compositor. Histórico. © 2014 Ritmo

Review By Peter Gutmann,Classical Notes,

The Naxos edition is fascinating for the light it sheds on the art of transfers, as it contrasts the work of the two giants in the field. Mark Obert-Thorn provides Naxos with a much warmer acoustic that evokes the composer’s passion, as well as the rich sonic blend of the Philadelphia Orchestra. Neither is ‘correct;’ both enrich our understanding of a complex artist.

Review By Geoffrey Norris,The Daily Telegraph (Australia),September 2003

"Two earlier recordings have a great deal more than just historical value...the pianism on both is breathtaking."
