Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have to admit that I had never heard of Van Cliburn, and was more than pleasantly surprised by his playing. As good as any of the more recent great names like Ashkenazy, less eccentric than Agerich, with lots of passion and technical ability. The orchestras were both excellent and the recordings (made in 1958 and 1962) sound and as clear and powerful as any made recently.

This is no great surprise with the Tchaikovsky, Kiril Kondrashin having been an acknowledged master of russian music. The Rachmaninov however, is more surprising as Fritz Reiner was more well-known as an expert interpretor of the works of Richard Strauss (and other german/austrian composers).

As with most of the Living Stereo SACD series, the sound quality and dynamic range are outstanding.

Note for those with multi-channel playback equipment: On the SACD multi-channel layer, these are 3 track recordings (left, centre, and right speakers).

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This disc couples two recordings made by van Cliburn in 1958 and 1962 and which are very dear to the hearts of many Americans who grew up with them. There is also the enormous emotional factor relating to van Cliburn's sensational win at the Tchaikovsky piano competition. Given these special factors coupled to his admittedly fine performances and you have a disc which has to be seen as a special case interpretively and which cannot easily be compared to others.

What can certainly be said that this pair of remastered recordings successfully improves the tonal range and the aural depth of field of both recordings and as such continues the success of these SACD discs.

There have of course been countless fine performances of these two works by many fine pianists and it would be both wrong and unwise to suggest that any one performance of either work can be viewed as definitive. The best one can do is to comment that this pair of performances deserves to be considered along with the best of those available.

Other Tchaikovsy's must include the Argerich CDs but even more her recently issued DVD on Euroarts. That too is special and in even better sound. Gavrilov also made a fiery and Russian inflected recording for EMI on CD. Another remarkable DVD which really cannot be ignored is that of a very young Kissin with Karajan and the BPO. One could go on.

The situation with the Rachmaninov is even more complex with even more fine performances and recordings to choose from including two by Ashkenazy, Katchen (very red-blooded), Richter, Wild, Lugansky and Andsnes to name but a few.
