This review is from: Rachmaninov: Rhapsody On A Theme Of Paganini, Chopin & Corelli Variations (Audio CD)
Made well known to a wide audience as the theme music for "The South Bank Show" the Variations on a theme of Paganini are so much more than the opening section. Less well known are the other two sets on this CD, but certainly no less interesting. Apparently the Corelli Variations were based on a Portuguese folk dance, yet when told of this, Rachmaninov declared he had more important things to worry about!
