    Rachmaninoff plays his transcription of "Liebesfreud"

    If you'll indulge me this one more piece- another "Rach plays Rach" piece. This one is a Rachmaninoff transcription of Fritz Kreisler's (1875-1962) work "Liebesfreud." The man could play the piano!

    You can actually see this score out on the web!

    Pretty darn cool if you think about it. Rachmaninoff has been dead for 65 years, yet we hear him here as though he just recorded this in a studio.
    Ain't technology grand?! Again, rendered with G.A. Steinway in "Under Lid" position.

    A piece of triva (from Wikipedia):
    Rachmaninoff played most of his public performances on Steinway & Sons pianos. He owned two New York Steinways D-274 in his Beverly Hills home on Elm Drive, he also owned a New York D in his New York home, however, in 1933, he chose a Hamburg D for his new home, villa Senar, in Switzerland.

    Keith,

    Another stunning capture and rendering of the master at the keyboard. Yes technology of this type is really wonderful. And so it the Garritan Steinway!!

    Gosh, there's *so* much good material coming off that
    new Steinway... hard to keep up!

    But, as you say, hearing Rachmaninoff back from the
    dead like this (how's he look, by the way?) is a particular
    enjoyment.

    Very well done on this, Keith, and thanks for bringing
    this one forward. Quite a performance!

    My best,
