Beautiful in every way,

This review is from: Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No.2; Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini (Audio CD)
The dream team of Valery Gergiev, Lang Lang and the orchestra of the Mariinsky theatre is pure enchantment and the sound quality is astounding.
I have never heard these pieces performed so beautifully before. They touch every nerve with their intoxicating mix of emotions - so brutally honest in the delivery - forcing you to feel the fear, doubt, grief, sadness and joy that Rachmaninov himself must have felt in order to write them. I don't know anything about classical music technically - but I know it should move you - and this does... It moves you to the very core!
