Rachmaninoff: Piano Concertos Nos 1 and 4 – Simon Trpceski, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Vasily Petrenko

Simon Trpceski’s recording of Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concertos Nos 2 and 3 was one of the most acclaimed and best-selling classical releases of 2010. His frequent collaborations with Vasily Petrenko and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra are justly celebrated. Together they complete the Rachmaninoff canon with this highly anticipated follow-up: Concertos Nos 1 and 4 and the ‘Paganini’ Rhapsody. The previous release made the Top 3 of the UK Specialist Classical Chart and won a Diapason d’or de l’année.



           ****

Giuseppe Rossi - Musica magazine - March 2012


"An impressive Rachmaninov: there is real chemistry between Trpceski and Petrenko." ****

Greg Keane - Limelight magazine (Australia) - October 2011


"...Rachmaninov’s craft and intelligence shine through, in a witty, percussive reading. Avie’s sound, recorded in Liverpools Philharmonic Hall, is refulgent, warm and detailed"

Graham Rickson - theartsdesk.com - 2 September 2011


                            Editor’s Choice

"...This is a riveting disc, another major landmark for Trpceski and one on which Rachmaninov finds interpreters thoroughly attuned to his emotional world."

Geoffrey Norris - Gramophone magazine - September 2011


"...a notable release, blessed with outstanding sound."

Colin Anderson - The Classical Source - August 2011

Calum MacDonald - BBC Music magazine - August 2011

 


     Editor’s Choice

"... all three works sound fresh, dynamic and vital. Already attracting labels like ’dream team’, this is a musical combination which works superbly, and this much anticipated follow up to their earlier Rachmaninov recording demonstrates a fabulous level of skill, artistry and appreciation."  *****

Jane Jones - Classic FM magazine - August 2011





*****
What an amazing rapport these two have and now we have the entire Rachmaninov Piano orchestra favourites to review. Liverpool Phil are known as the best Russian Orchestra outside of Russia, by this CD you will hear they are probably a bit better than that. The performance never tries to impress for the sake of it, it is controlled and purposeful throughout. Nevertheless the playing is sonorous and impassioned. One note: The last few tracks had a loud swoosh across parts of them. I mailed the support desk and they re-cut and re-sent them instantly. Pretty impressive when Amazon often just say sorry and take off sale under the same circumstances. And also cheaper than anyone else. Can't go wrong!
