Product Description

Review

All in all,a very impressive disc. Performance ***** Recording **** --BBC Music Magazine, Aug'12

...this work reveals that Wang's virtues include a superfine control of fast notes(whether in pianissimo or at the louder end of the spectrum). --IRR, July/Aug'12

Here, even in Rachmaninov's most savage and tubulent pages, is playing of an awesome clarity and poise. Xiayin Wang makes her chosen composer sound greater and more indelibly Russian than ever.Such playing underlines the pity one feels for those poor puritan souls still unable to appriciate such beauty, particularly when presented in Chandos's immaculate sound. GRAMOPHONE CHOICE --Gramophone,Sept'12

5.0 out of 5 stars outstanding Rachmaninoff playing 12 Sep 2012
By Bruce A. Mcdonald - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This excellent disc (with superlatively clear Chandos recording) is the kind of Rachmaninoff playing that is not only technically dazzling, but MUSICAL. This pianist certainly is on the same wave length as the composer, and her playing (from three different periods of the composer's life) is superb--and well-planned. A delight!

5.0 out of 5 stars Masterful and Exquisite 4 Aug 2012
By Andrew M. Klein - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I never thought to hear Ashkenazy's first recording of the Corelli Variations surpassed -- and had a hard time imagining them played differently much less on a par with that magnificent introduction to one of the most nelgected great piano works known to me. Wang does both and perhaps is to be preferred. (I have listened to this wonderful disc only twice as of this writing and will listen many more times before I switch to something else.) Nor had I imagined that anyone could play the Etudes Tableaux in a way the would compete with Richter. These performances, doing even more than Richter to unwrap the competing voices in these extraordinarily complex and beautiful pieces, does that. No one familiar with Rachmaninov's work, indeed, no one new to it, should fail to take advantage of Wang's exceptional recording of these overwhelming contributions to the piano literature by its last great master. (I have left this same review on Arkiv.)
