RACHMANINOV, Sergey: Piano Solo Recordings, Vol. 5 - Final Edison and First Victor Recordings (1919-1923)

Sergey Rachmaninov moved to America in 1918 and immediately began giving concerts to raise funds for his new life outside Russia. Thomas Edison was the first to entice him into the recording studio, and the compositions captured here complete his work for Edison, the rest of which can be found on volume 4 (8.111407). In 1920 Rachmaninov moved to the Victor company, and these first recordings, made with the acoustical process, reveal the perfectionist composer-pianist at his fascinating best.
