Valentina Lisitsa on Searching for the Rachmaninoff Affinity

When Valentina Lisitsa came to Stockholm to play Rachmaninoff’s third piano concerto, it was a welcome fact not only for all her fans but also for anybody well aware of the enormous challenge this concerto means for any performer. In 2013 Lisitsa released her Complete Rachmaninoff Concertos (including the Paganini Rhapsody) on Decca and therefor this was a rare chance for Piano Street’s Patrick Jovell not to talk to her about YouTube but… Sergei Rachmaninoff.

Any comments welcome. Especially regarding agogics -- did I take too much liberty? You certainly would not enjoy dancing to this any more... On the other hand, when I try to stick to the metrum, all the feeling gets lost. How do you play this one? Well, I look forward to any kind of tips.

I dance and I think you have kept the dance like quality without it becoming metronomic. It has a sweet tender sound, like a lullaby almost.

Wow, very impressive!
I thought this was just a well-known but boring piece, since it's impossible to put much feeling into the melody line. You showed me that it is actually possible. I never tried to put this much liberty in it. Worked surprisingly well!
