One of the last great representatives of romanticism in Russian classical music, Rachmaninoff was also one of the leading pianists and conductors of his day; few composers have come close to his striking gift for melody and for exploring the expressive possibilities of the piano.
This box contains all the published works written by Rachmaninov, plus some bonus cd's with historical performances by artists like Horowitz and Rachmaninov himself.
The bonus CD-ROM that accompanies this great big box contains an essay by Julian Haylock entitled "The Lonely Romantic," which puts all this rapturously beautiful music into context.
