Sergei Rachmaninoff

Borovsky, Hofmann, Horowitz, Igumnov, Maurina, Pintel, Pouishnoff, Roessel and Strecker
today playing their 1905– 1927 interpretations

EAN/barcode: 4009850020400

Our new issue of this month expands the series "Welte-Mignon Mystery" by another gem. Until now, the series was primarily orientated on the Welte catalogue, and thus on the pianist who, on a certain date, recorded a kind of "recital" in the Freiburg recording studio. There were pianists, however, who only recorded a few pieces and, on the other hand, there were several composers who were especially well represented during the "Welte" era. Sergei Rachmaninoff was doubtless amongst the latter. Alexander Borovsky, Anatol von Roessel, Leff Pouishnoff, Vera Maurina, Paul Strecker, Konstantin Igumnov, Józef Hofmann, Jacques Pintel and Vladimir Horowitz - they all recorded their selections of pieces sometime between 1905 and 1927 for the "Seventh World Wonder" Welte, and Rachmaninoff was included each time. A kaleidoscope.
