Equally renowned as composer and pianist, Rachmaninov dazzled the world with his piano concerto in C minor. It is immensely popular to this day. Brilliant and powerful with the beautiful lyric theme that became the popular song Full Moon and Empty Arms, it is here presented in a lovely recording, sans your part, the solo piano. This deluxe 2CD set includes a luxuriant 96-page, newly engraved score, plus a second slow-tempo practice accompaniment to help you get up to speed.
Includes a newly engraved 96-page music score printed on high-quality ivory paper; a digital stereo compact disc featuring a complete performance of the concerto with orchestra and soloist, and a second performance minus you, the soloist; and a second compact disc containing a full-speed version of the complete version as well as a special -12% slow-tempo version of the accompaniment for practice purposes. The concerto is voluminously indexed for your practice and performance convenience.
