I remain a little curious as to the arrangements made for Telarc to record the Prom concert on August 21st, 2001; as an ex-BBC employee I am well aware that every one is recorded by the BBC for broadcast, either on radio or TV. From my perusal of the cover notes, I would guess that Telarc recorded the concerto separately from the BBC, presumably duplicating the technical arrangements; in any case the result is a success.
I auditioned this after Lang Lang's recording of Rachmaninov's second concerto for DG (see my review); the performance of the third was made earlier and I must assume that Lang Lang was less confident of his enduring celebrity and therefore less self-indulgent. In any case, he turns in a far more rounded performance. Yes, his leaning towards delicacy and romanticism are still evident, but he is not afraid to explore the more muscular side of Rachmaninov and let his phenomenal technique off the leash. The climax of the mighty first movement cadenza gets as close to being orgasmic as any that I have heard, and there is a true contrast between pianissimo and fortissimo throughout. Yuri Temirkanov and the St. Petersburg Philharmonic provide a sympathetic and well-integrated accompaniment. Even a virtuoso such as Rachmaninov himself would surely have appreciated this performance. I was ready to make an allowance for it being live, but none is necessary.
The Chinese folk song given as an encore displays sparkling fingerwork.
Recorded later in 2001 in the Warner Hall of Oberlin College, the selection of 10 Scriabin studies requires a wide range of interpretive and technical expertise. Lang Lang has everything necessary to bring this music to life, and I particularly enjoy my personal favourite, op. 8 no.

He gives everything into his music, and has the most superb emotional insight - this music is simply stunning; the technical prowess demonstrated in the 1st movement cadenzas - to be honest, I've found the emotional highs of sections slightly addictive and have listened to them about 100 times! it's about 7 and then 10 mins into the 1st movement. Highly recommended.

I saw Lang Lang do this performance of Rachmaninov's 3rd piano concerto during last year's PROMs (2001) at the Royal Albert Hall in London. It's probably the most moving piece of classical music that I have ever seen in my life. His eyes were closed throughout, lost in the music. The recording of that concert contained on this CD is just as moving.
If you like Rachmaninov you'll love this CD.
