My acquaintance with this recording began with my parent's 78s. On more mature reflection, I would suggest that the Second Concerto offered here may well be the greatest recording ever made of a piano concerto. Rachmaninov and Stokowski work together as if of one mind, passing the lead back and forth with no break in the flow of the music. Ormandy in the Third Concerto is not quite on Stokowski's level, but close enough. The Dutton remaster is the finest available by a wide margin. It's hard to believe how old the original recordings were. If you love Rachmaninov, you must have this disc!

I'm so glad I found these recordings. They are a joy to listen to and the audio quality is by far better than any of the other ones out there. The expressiveness Rachmaninoff shows comes out much more clearly in these recordings. We are very privileged to have these available. Its the most authoritative interpretations because it comes from the composer himself. What more can we ask for.
