“It's a world in which Idil Biret is completely at home.”

Presto Classical

David Smith

“A mixed bag of transcriptions, both of his own works and those of other composers as diverse as Bach and Mussorgsky that show Rachmaninov's incredible skill at recreating the sounds of the orchestra at the piano. A particular favourite of mine is the arrangement of The Star-Spangled Banner that rounds off the album.”
