Sergei Rachmaninoff was rare among the great composers of history in that he was also a famed conductor and pianist, in equal measure. On these discs, of course, our attention is on his work as a composer and transcriber, but we must not forget the musical scope of this genius. He was renowned as a conductor and pianist, no less than as a composer, enjoying an international reputation and immense popularity for his work in all three arenas. He was the last great proponent of late Russian Romanticism.
