I know a lot of you don't like her, but it's awesome that she posted this for everyone to view. Definitely very interesting to listen to while imagining the orchestra yourself.

She has a whole series of these solos up for the other concertos too.

And I even found a version with orchestra minus the soloist. Might be fun to try once I actually get good. http://musicminusone.com/rachmanino...tally-remastered-2-cd-set-mmocd3007.html

And you can always change the tempo of the orchestra to the soloist's tastes with Audacity or something.

I wonder if there's a MIDI version of the orchestra available?

Allan, thank you for posting this. There is much to be learned by watching a professional play, even if she is not my favorite pianist. To me it's especially interesting how she supports those loud bass notes - either using a chopping motion with the side of her hand or using more than one finger.

I had the fortune to stand next to a concert pianist/teacher as she demonstrated those very notes. At first I was skeptical that someone so slender could deliver the necessary power to make those notes ring but she produced a bell-like quality that was deep, rich and loud enough to shake the rafters. I could feel my pulse rising as she become louder and louder. She too used the side of her 5th finger.



Best regards,

Deborah

I came across another playing of Rach 2 without orchestra,

It's Nobuyuki Tsujii at the rehearsal for the 2009 Cliburn. I'm sure most of you know, but he co-won gold and is a blind pianist. Very interesting!
