Gramophone, October 2010

The composer’s own recordings, a reference-point for all who came afterwards and superb in their own right.

Lawrence A. Johnson
Fanfare, April 2000

"One could hardly do better than begin [this series] with such essential performances as Sergei Rachmaninov's own recordings of his works for piano and orchestra. The importance of these classic RCA performances as vital historical documents need not be restated here, even though I must confess to being in the minority in finding the composer's playing strangely offhand at times. Still, they remain a fascinating listen and essential for any collection... The remastering by Mark Obert-Thorn is superbly done, and the two discs gain, of course, by the low Naxos price."
