Playlist Mix ARCADI VOLODOS RACHMANINOFF PIANO CONCERTO NO 2 PROMS ‘LIVE’ 51 Videos
Commenter – “What can one say? This and the Bronfman 3rd. Though the sound is not quite up the later Proms YouTube performances, it is amazing to hear magnificence from both the pianist and Maestro Chailly, Always a wonderful partner. Every section of his orchestra honed to perfection. As to (then young) Mr Volodos, it was a performance filled with thrilling articulation, propulsion, but never at the expense of the built in romanticism, and beautiful individual touches, such as the trill toward the close of the 2nd movement, as the orchestra then enters to play its final strain of the main theme, one of Rachmaninoff’s most beautiful creations.
I say no more…words are not needed. What is needed is a replay of this video VERY soon. Many thanks for posting this…indeed a CLASSIC performance.”
