Rachmaninov Plays Rachmaninov: late Romantic giant Sergei Rachmaninov performs his own compositions - Piano Concertos Nos. 1-4 and Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini - on piano alongside conductors Eugene Ormandy (one of his best friends) and Leopold Stokowski and the Philadelphia Orchestra (his favorite orchestra). Rachmaninov's instrumental prowess certainly matches his compositional gifts here with definitive performances rich in expression and tone.
