I don't use the word "incredible" unless something truly stretches the boundaries of credibility. This performance does just that. Rachmaninov's second piano concerto has become a warhorse of the classical music repertoire, and with so many great performances over the years it is hard for one to stand out in the crowd, but from the opening bars of this performance one's jaw almost drops to the floor. Zimerman not only gets the notes right, he does it with all of the flair that Rachmaninov himself would have certainly desired. His playing is nuanced and his technique nothing short of amazing.But not to give all of the kudos to Zimerman. The Boston Symphony Orchestra hasn't sounded this good since Charles Munch was the music director. The musicians are up to the task of the score, Ozawa demonstrates complete mastery of the music, and the partnership between the soloist and the orchestra is impeccable.And let's not overlook the First Concerto here. This is one of those magnificent pieces that is so overshadowed by Rachmaninov's Second and Third concerti that one "discovers" only late in life what an outstanding work it is: Exciting and dramatic in the classic Russian style. And, of course, Zimerman and the BSO totally convince you that even if this were the only concerto Rachmaninov had written, he would still be hailed as a great composer.I was a music major in college, and although I've not pursued a music career I've been an aficianado for all of the last forty-five years. If you could only take one recording of this work to your desert island this is the one, and I'm not so sure that this would not be the one to take if you could take only one recording of any piano concerto.max 58% off,trend rank,popular shop is the lowest price challengeRachmaninov: Piano Concertos Nos. 1 2

These are fine performances. Zimerman's playing can be somewhat self-conscious, and at times he seems to be aware that he ought to say something new about these well-known works, but he's never less than animated. The first concerto comes across as stylish and warm, with the melodies clear amidst the sheer brilliance of the playing and the rhythms strongly underlined. The lack of mania is most welcome. (Earl Wild's performance of this work on Chandos, however, is more spectacular than any other.) The second, better-known work, is an honest, straightforward reading, with the first movement's finale expansive and grand, an Adagio of surprising affection and meditation, and a final movement in which the very familiar second melody shows up almost surprisingly in its freshness. If this lacks the tension found in some other recordings, it makes up for it in a non-garish boldness which shines. The recording of choice here is Ashkenazy's on Decca, but, again, both of these concerti are well-served by Zimerman, and Ozawa's leadership of the BSO is masterful. --Robert Levine

All Abuzz About Bugs!

We are an online community of naturalists who enjoy learning about and sharing our observations of insects, spiders, and other related creatures.

We enjoy the opportunity to instill in others the fascination and appreciation that we share for the intricate lives of these oft-maligned creatures.

Our Mission

Using the best resources we have access to, we are creating a knowledgebase to help each other and the online community.

Our Method

We collect photographs of bugs from the United States and Canada for identification and research.

We summarize our findings in guide pages for each order, family, genus, and species.

Making New Discoveries

More than just a clearinghouse for information, this site helps expand on the natural histories of our subjects. By capturing the place and time that submitted images were taken, we are creating a virtual collection that helps define where and when things might be found.

We capture never-before-seen behaviors and we have photos of species that you won't find anywhere else on the web.
