One of the greatest Rachmaninov recordings of recent years has just been issued in the USA, but apparently not yet in the UK. I'd like to alert all Rachmaninophiles to it. Garrick Ohlsson is the soloist in the 3rd Piano Concerto, with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra under Roberto Spano. The coupling is the Symphonic Dances. Total time - a few seconds under 80 minutes. I have amassed some 80 recordings of the concerto over the years and have no hesitation in counting this Ohlsson one among the top 5, by every criterion. The Sym. Dan. also are enthralling. Ohlsson has to be just about the supreme king of classical keyboard in the States just now, and the performance here is absolutely awesome, in assurance, passion, poetry, garguantuan virtuosity (he takes the bigger cadenza) and visceral thrill. Don't miss this one. It pulverises virtually all the competition. The orchestral partnership is outstandingly successful too. Spano has lavished immense care and affection on every detail in both works, and the recording quality is deeply rich and satisfying. A real triumph for all concerned.
