"This live recording of Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto no.3 was made on November 13, 1992 at the Bolshoi Hall of Moscow Conservatory during a concert to honour the memory of Jacob Flier (1912-1977) with whom Pletnev and I both studied. Flier was one of the greatest teachers in Moscow Conservatory who brought up several generations of prominent pianists. It was a very special and emotional occasion for Pletnev and myself and we did our best to pay a worthy tribute to our teacher." Vladimir Feltsman

The solo pieces which accompany the Piano Concerto were recorded at the Wyastone Concert Hall in November 2010.

Sergei Dukachev (piano)

The piano music of Rachmaninov explores the registral capabilities of the modern piano in a fascinating manner. Rachmaninov’s artistic idiom is rich in references to traditional Russian music. It is, however, counter-pointed by a progressive chromaticism set in a neo-classical framework. Rachmaninov incorporates haunting melodies, thick chordal textures and distinct rhythmic patterns – all of which are held in a musical architecture marked by astounding economy.

Rachmaninov was a remarkable artist: he excelled in the fields of composing, performing and conducting. His playing indeed, along with the size of his hands, has become legendary. As a composer Rachmaninov is famous for his symphonies, concerti and instrumental music. In addition, his songs and sacred music have recently gained recognition as important areas of his oeuvre.

In 2008 Challenge Classics released a very popular, limited edition of The Original Recordings 1950-1960 of the legendary Dutch conductor Willem van Otterloo with The Hague Philharmonic. This eagerly anticipated new seven-CD set presents a broader perspective, and features four renowned orchestras with which he conducted and recorded, including the Royal Concertgebouw, the Vienna Symphony, the Berlin Philharmonic, and the Hague Philharmonic.

Willem Van Otterloo (1907-1978) was born in Winterswijk, Gelderland, in the Netherlands. While playing as a cellist in the Utrecht Stedelijk Orkest, he won a composition prize from the Concertgebouw Orchestra for his Suite No. 3, which he presented in his 1932 conducting debut. He held posts with the Utrecht Stedelijk Orkest, before being appointed chief conductor of the Residentie Orkest in The Hague (1949-1973).

Challenge Classics have also issued a disc of Van Otterloo’s compositions, performed by the Netherlands Radio Chamber Orchestra (CC72180).

Tchaikovsky/Rachmaninov


Nikolai Lugansky, now a household name on the international concert stage, began his recording career in his early twenties for the label Vanguard Classics. This Rachmaninov recital contains a lyrical and transparent performance of the famous Second Sonata, several song transcriptions, the Corelli Variations and a hair-raising performance of Mendelssohn's 'Scherzo' from Midsummer Night's Dream, surpassing even the composer himself in sparkling lightness and velocity. Nikolay Lugansky, hailed by his teachter Tatiana Nikolaeva as “the next one”, has made an impressive career, and performs with the world' s most famous orchestras and conductors. He records for Warner Classics.

First and only recording by Lugansky of this repertoire.
