In case you missed it, yesterday (April 2nd) was the 140th birthday of Sergei Rachmaninoff – and if you want to get picky, March 28th also commemorated 70 years since his passing. A sort of 2-for-1 celebration going on this past week.
But in any event. It’s over to Moscow this week for one of the celebration concerts being given by Russian National Orchestra, guest conducted by Dmitry Liss and featuring Boris Berezovsky, piano (not to be confused with the currently dead Boris Berezovky of Questionable Circumstances fame).
A good time was had by all and Berezovsky tossed just about everything but the kitchen sink into this performance.
So here’s what’s on the players:
Russian National Orchestra
Dmitry LIss, Conductor
Boris Berezovsky, Piano
All Rachmaninoff Concert
1. Piano Concerto Nr. 1
2. Piano Concerto Nr. 4
1. Symphony Nr. 3
The concert was recorded this past March 23rd by Radio Orpheus.
