The Russian conductor Valery Gergiev is serving up works from his own country. The composer–pianist Serge Rachmaninoff performed the premiere of his own Third Piano Concerto, and played the work with the Concertgebouw Orchestra in four Dutch cities. At that time, he remarked, ‘The musicians thought it was beautiful, but critics and audiences didn’t.’

It would eventually be the pianist Vladimir Horowitz who would change audiences’ minds about the work, and today Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto is now an undisputed staple of the standard repertoire. Because of its difficulty, pianists consider it a daunting masterpiece.

Making his first appearance with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the young Uzbek pianist Behzod Abduraimov performs it here under the direction of Valery Gergiev.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
