RACHMANINOV, Sergey: Piano Solo Recordings, Vol. 6 - Victor Recordings (1922-1924)

After the end of his contract with Edison, the period covered in Volume 5 (8.111408), Rachmaninov signed for Victor in April 1920 and recorded for the company for the rest of his life. Victor was keen to record their star pianist in his own compositions, as well as short works by Chopin and popular encore pieces. This volume also contains the very rare test pressing of Le Cygne in Alexander Siloti’s transcription, and the premiere release first take of Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 2 first movement, recorded acoustically in 1924.
