Sergei Rachmaninov was not only an extraordinary composer; he was also one of the greatest pianists ever. He had an amazing piano technique and excellent musical abilities. The recording of today was made on December 16th, 1925 when Rachmaninov had signed an exclusive contract with the Victor Record Company. He played on a Steinway D Grand piano on the occasion of these recordings.
