Found this buried somewhere in my mp3 collection. Sadly the file name just says "rachmaninov" and that's it.

Anyone know who might be playing and what piano this could be? I mean, it's probably a Steinway but it just doesn't quite sound like one to me. May be just the recording though.

Granted, it's a a shot in the dark but it can't hurt to try.

Thanks for registering! If nothing else, at least that's what it accomplished smile

No idea about the performance though right?

This is a beautiful composition.

EDIT: Initially wondered about source.

Here are three additional performances of the song.

Rach himself through a piano roll, apparently on a Bösendorfer: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ABiuqb6gDO0

So, I'm a little confused: the link I clicked on from the OP led to the Rachmaninov performance of Kreisler's Liebesfreud.

For whatever reason that link in the first post has been changed from what it was originally.

It's all reveiled in the other thread. Now this whole link mismatch thing seems to be some bug with box.com, as I did not do such a thing. Will try and get back the original file later when I'm at home. Sorry for the confusion.

Edit: Fixed. Of course the bug was with the user, not the software. Uploading in the wrong place there replaces an existing file rather than adding a new one.
