Description
Recorded at the National Concert Hall in Dublin, this 1992 program opens with Sergei Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No. 3 of 1909. "Musicians loved it," Rachmaninov said of this challenging work, "but not the audience or critics" (who found it too complicated). It was not until the late 1920s, with the advent of the young Vladimir Horowitz, that it won widespread acclaim; it is performed here by Bernd Glemser, winner of the 1993 European Pianists Prize. Displaying the influences of both Tchaikovsky and Rimsky-Korsakov, Rachmaninov's remarkable student work Prince Rostislav (1891) is based on an 1856 ballad written by Aleksey Konstantinovich Tolstoy.

"[Bernd] Glemser possesses obvious lyrical qualities that flourish in the expansive slow movement."Diapason

"This is by any standards a notable achievement."CD Review
