Brilliant urtext editions of Rachmaninoff’s complete piano works in monumental and stunningly produced volumes. Seriously, what’s not to like?
Those using the older Rachmaninoff editions from Boosey & Hawkes or Belwin Mills will find the notation, presentation, scholarship and durability of these astonishing volumes well worth the investment.
Overall though, these editions really are the ones to beat, and Rachmaninoff enthusiasts everywhere – whether scholars, performers or both – will be eager to snap up copies of these practical urtext editions now that they have landed on our shores!
