5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful set of encore piano pieces, 3 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Piers Lane gives each item on this disc the attention he would give to a classical piano piece. A delightful and entertaining program consisting of light piano pieces as well as more serious works. A favourite is the rarely performed Delibes/Dohnanyi version of the "Naila" waltz-very tricky to play!

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb performances of violin works by Bruch and Sarasate, 3 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The first concerto is so well known it overshadows the third. The latter is a splendid work for which Chloe Hanslip is afine advocate. The Sarasate is a delightful fill up, rpounding off a fine disc.

4.0 out of 5 stars THe performance is very Spanish in feeling, 4 Jun. 2013

4 Stars only because I thought the sound to be a little harsh at times, otherwise a great collection of the orchestral version of these very difficult piano pieces.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Start to 2013, 20 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The traditional Vienna Philharmonic Concert this was much more interesting that those from from previous years. It include much that was unfamiliar by Johann Strauss II and to include Wagner was adventurous but down well. All in all brilliant and Franz Welser-Most was more relaxed than on his first concert. A very fine issue.

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific performances of each work: a great addition to the MP3 range, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The downloaded version is in my opinion as good as the audio CD, despite the slight file compression: little sound quality is lost.

Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No. 3 & Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini

5.0 out of 5 stars A great addtion to this repertoire, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A very good recording indeed revealing clearly a lot of the inner orchestral parts. Matsuev is a force to reckon with. He, Gergiev and the orchestra make for a rewarding listen. I have several versions of these two works. In the concerto, Matsev has a somewhat different view to the other soloists which is, to my mind, both interesting and valid.
