Valentina strikes again!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No.4 (MP3 Download)
This isn't my favourite Rachmaninov Piano Concerto and it certainly isn't as well-known or popular as nos. 1 to 3 (hence the four-star rating). However, Valentina's virtuosity is very evident yet again and she's very ably assisted once more by the LSO in a technically excellent recording. Gosh, this young woman has certainly been hiding her light under a bushel all these years - every recording demonstrates how good she really is and she must surely be ranked in the higher echelons of world-class pianists.
I very much look forward to hearing future recordings from Valentina - others must also think so too, as Decca appear to be cashing in on her growing popularity by steadily increasing prices..........!

Good review but I wouldn't remove a star because of the piece. It actually does grow on you but is much more compact than the sweeping indulgences of 2 & 3. 5 stars from me.
