Verified Purchase
Recorded more than two decades ago (1987&89), Alexeev's account of Rachmaninov's complete preludes can still hold its own. These are deeply expressive performances, but never sentimental. There's an element of suffering underneath the lyrical beauty of Rachmaninov's music, Alexeev captures it so masterfully with thoughtful use of the pedal. Sometimes, he doesn't use it at all to bring out inner voices or intricacy of broken chords with clarity, where most of pianists blur them with too much use of sustaining pedal. I usually get tired of Rachmaninov's music if I listen to two discs in succession, but these recordings I replayed immediately and each time I play them, there's something new to discover.

I saw this great pianist in action in 2012 at the Usher Hall in Edinburgh playing Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No.1 with the St Petersburg PO. He really went for it but very sadly there were many mistakes which were noted not just by me but in reviews of the concert the next day. So I was interested to see what recordings he did when he was in more of his heyday, which I suppose was during the late 1980's and through the 90's. On this CD he recorded all of the Rachmaninov Preludes and the Morceaux de fantaisie and also Moments musicaux in 1987/89 for Virgin Classics. I'm glad to say he plays them all very beautifully indeed.
