Blagoslovi Dushe Moya Gospoda (Vespers). Rakhmaninov
Blagoslovi Dushe Moya Gospoda (Vespers). Rakhmaninov This is from the classic opus 37 setting of the Vsenoshnoye Vedeniye (All-night Vigil) by Sergei Rakhmaninov. The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir sings it under the direction of Paul Hillier, and the soloist is Iris Oja. It is accompanied by contemporary Russian religious art. This setting is one of my particular favourites, and can move me to tears by its beauty.

RACHMANINOFF: PENNARIO / Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor Op. 30 / 1/
RACHMANINOFF: PENNARIO / Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor Op. 30 / 1/ Part 1 / 4 A TRULY AMAZING PERFORMANCE! LEONARD PENNARIO: Piano Walter Susskind / London Philharmonia Orchestra Leonard Pennario was the first pianist after Rachmaninoff himself to record all four of Rachmaninoff's piano concertos, in addition to the "Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini." As a boy in Buffalo, he met Rachmaninoff, and as a mature artist, his affinity with the older master was such that the conductor Leopold Stokowski wrote to him: "Dear Mr. Pennario, Your performance last night of Rachmaninoffs Variations on a Theme of Paganini was so powerful and brilliant that it reminded me of the composers playing of this beautiful music. Pennario's 1959 performance of Rachmaninoff's towering Third Piano Concerto, recorded with Walter Susskind and the all-star London Philharmonia, is a hallmark. It is the only "Rach 3" in Fanfare Magazine's Hall of Fame. It spotlights the unique warmth, fire and virtuosity that made Pennario the best-selling classical pianist of the LP era and also the favored pianist of the great violinist Jascha Heifetz, who teamed up with him for a series of concerts and Grammy-winning recordings. Enjoy the playing of this unique, miraculous American talent!

Rachmaninoff - Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Op. 43 "Variation 1
Rachmaninoff - Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Op. 43 "Variation 1 Variation 18 from Rhapsody on a Theme of Pagainini, Op. 43 Boston Pops Orchestra Arthur Fiedler, conductor Leonard Pennario, piano The Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini in A minor, opus 43, is a concertante work (20 to 25 minutes in length), written by Sergei Rachmaninoff. It is written for solo piano and symphony orchestra, closely resembling a piano concerto. The work was written at Villa Senar, according to the score, from July 3 to August 18 1934. Rachmaninoff himself, a noted interpreter of his own works, played the solo piano part at the piece's premiere at the Lyric Opera House in Baltimore, Maryland, on November 7, 1934 with the Philadelphia Orchestra, conducted by Leopold Stokowski. The piece is a set of 24 variations on the twenty-fourth and last of Niccolò Paganini's Caprices for solo violin, which has inspired works by several composers. The slow eighteenth variation is by far the most well-known, and it is often included on classical music compilations without the rest of the work. It is based on an inversion of the melody of Paganini's theme. In other words, the A minor Paganini theme is played "upside down" in D flat major. Rachmaninoff himself recognized the appeal of this variation, saying "This one, is for my agent." Quoted from Michael Steinberg's "The Concerto: a listener's guide" Sergei Rachmaninoff (1873 - 1943)
