My interest in classical music began years ago with this very CD, when I checked it out from the library for no reason. I never experienced such intense musical pleasure in my life. I am the kind of person that appreciates music much more for composition than performance. In a classical recording, I look for a spotless, untainted production of the composer's intent. I don't want it to be altered by an artist's individual interpretations. So, in light of this musical philosophy, I confidently declare that this album is absolutely perfect. The recording is balanced. The temperament is neutral. Is that bad? No. It allows the emotion of Rachmaninoff's composition to come through at 100%.
