One of the most popular and successful pieces of music written for piano. This album also has the benefit of being one of the best sounding LPs ever made. Side 2 contains a very fine Nights In The Gardens Of Spain

Rachmaninoff's Rhapsody was composed during a sojourn in Switzerland during the summer of 1934. The music itself is of such clarity, of such structural simplicity, that analysis would be a distasteful condecension. The macabre humor, the wit, the poetry, the nostalgia, the warm sentiment and the wry cynicism which the composer puts into the work and which the soloist extracts from it are inescapably clear.

Characteristically, Falla labored over Nights in the Gardens of Spain for six years. He began it in 1909 as a set of pieces for piano solo, but it grew to become a series of "symphonic impressions" for orchestra with piano obbligato. This recorded version is doubly authoritative, since both the soloist and the conductor were close to the composer and studied his scores with him.
