I would walk over coals to hear Alexander Romanovsky, and this CD is a marvel. All of Rachmaninoff's fire, passion, tenderness and beauty are brought to life here, with flawless phrasing and extraordinary power. Mr. Romanovsky makes both the Corelli Variations and the Etudes Tableaux (op. 39) sound easy. They are not! (I have studied this music time and again over the years.) For comparison, Olga Kern, John Browning, Van Cliburn and others have recorded many of these works with superb results, but Mr. Romanovsky's performance is the Matterhorn. Please please someone ask him to record the Sonata No. 2, and team up with another pianist to play Rachmaninoff's last work, the Symphonic Variations! I do not know if there is a heaven, but if there is, and Sergei can hear this CD, he will be smiling.
