In an ongoing collaboration to breathe new life into legendary performances that have been marred by the poor recording quality of past times, Rachmaninoff Plays Rachmaninoff follows upon the success of Zenph® Studios' productions of Glenn Gould's 1955 recording of The Goldberg Variations (2007) and Art Tatum's Piano Starts Here (2008). This new compilation of re-performances is made from original masters that the colossal Russian composer and pianist recorded during his lifetime and celebrates the 100th anniversary of Rachmaninoff's U.S. recital debut.

Don't waste your time with the hype about wonderful recordings and binaural techniques.
Buy the RCA version and hear Rachmaninoff as he should be heard.
This reviewer has some interesting comments. I haven't checked all these out yet though.....
I have not compared this re-performance CD directly with CD issues transferred from either 78s or from Ampico piano recordings. In particular, I have not compared this new CD to the famous "A Window in Time" recording made on a Boesendorfer 290SE Reproducing Piano which seems to be the most obvious competitor to this Zenph CD. Therefore, although very enthusiastic, I am a little cautious about praising this new CD too highly.
Also, I have not yet listened to the Binaural Stereo tracks (14-26) through headphones which promises to be an even more vivid experience. I did listen to the first Binaural track (14) of the Kreisler/Rachmaninoff Liebesleid through my loudspeakers and it also sounded stunning.
Nevertheless, on the basis of my incomplete audition so far, I recommend the Zenph CD very highly to all lovers of Rachmaninoff's music and of great pianism.
