To celebrate these iconic recordings, DECCA has gone back to the original tapes and used the latest techniques and extensive comparison with the first LP pressings, to make a definitive transfer. For the first time ever, all audio processing has been achieved in the 96kHz 24-bit domain.

Rachmaninov’s works for piano and orchestra enjoy wide popularity with audiences and pianists. While the works are renowned for their often extreme technical demands, they are also famous for the deep poetic feeling and the typically Russian passion they evoke. These legendary interpretations bring authority and integrity to the music. “From Ashkenazy, every page declares Rachmaninov’s nationality, his indelibly Russian nature… Prévin works hand in glove with his soloist… the product of the greatest musical sympathy.” Gramophone
