Rach 3?????
« on: January 08, 2015, 07:13:04 AM »
I know this is kind of about the piano but I didnt know what other section to post this under.

I was just wondering if anyone on this forum ever posted their own recording of Rachmaninoff's 3rd Piano Concerto, an yes I could scroll threw the endless amount of topics in the auditions section, although you could just tell me.

I'm afraid laziness is it's own reward. Any extra would be just an indulgence.

I've listened with great pleasure some monstrous pieces played at Audition Room by very brilliant forum members (Hammerklavier by fnork, the complete Well Tempered Clavier by andhow, a marvellous rendition of Alkan Concerto Sans Orchestre by David "Fürtwangler", and such and such) but I cannot recall a Rach 3 recording.

But I'm not going to make a search. It's only a personal opinion but I had a time when I was younger that I loved that concert, I listened maybe too many times, maybe too many people played it on every single competition. Yes, it's a genius work and the problem is on me, I'm a bit tired of it. Sorry if I was of no help at all.
