Especially valuable in this respect is Volume 7 in which, apart from the single and superb playing of Scriabin's Prelude Op.11 No.8 we hear essentially all-Rachmaninov and some of the Preludes and Etude- tableaux in particular. The rapt and starkly romantic Melodie Op.3 No.3 is an object lesson in narrative tension (he plays the revision) - a quite wonderful performance by the way full of myriad subtleties - and the famous Polka de V.R. shows how nudge-nudge playing, beloved of some, is no substitute for the finesse, control and a kind of aristocratic aloofness that the composer displays here. Throughout these recordings voicings, colour, depth of lyricism and digital command are all harnessed to optimum effect. Declamatory and leonine power flow throughout the Prelude Op.32 No.3 but really it's invidious to single out any particular performance. Jonathan Woolf

S.Rachmaninov. Piano concerto No.2, Isle of the Dead, Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini
S.Rachmaninov, piano
Philadelphia Symphony orchestra conducted by L.Stokovsky

The first disc of our historic 8-volume collection that illustrates Rachmaninov's genius as pianist and conductor.

Philadelphia Orchestra conducted Leopold Stokowski (1 - 3, 5), Rachmaninov (4)


Vista Vera are serving admirers well with this set which restores to circulation the majority of his discs. The authorial voice we hear conducting the Isle of the Dead is intensely purposely but dramatic, powerful and tense. This famous recording and that of the Third Symphony (vol.5) show what we have missed through the restrictions on his conducting for RCA Victor. But enough remains to make a study of this body of work both necessary and important - both for students of Rachmaninov and for admirers of the repertoire and great pianism. a pianophile without Rachmaninov's recordings should not really sleep at night.

Alexander Jocheles won a prize at the Second Frederic Chopin Pianists’ Competition in Warsaw in 1932. However his fame as a pianist was ensured by the Second Prize won him in the First All-Union Competition for Musicians-Performers.

Alexander Jocheles had a preference for a broad repertoire which included numerous compositions that were rarely heard in performance by Soviet pianists of his time: from his own editions of Jean Philippe Rameau’s concertos and the rarely performed one-movement Concerto in D major by Ludwig van Beethoven to Claude Debussy’s Fantasy, Arthur Honegger’s Concertino and Francis Poulenc’s “Rhapsody Negre” - compositions which he presented to his country’s public for the first time.

Jocheles is well-known as having made a number of his own transcriptions - for instance, in 1947 he performed Beethoven’s “Hammerklavier” Sonata N. 29 (opus 106) in transcription for piano and orchestra. In Jocheles’ concerts and recitals his transcriptions of Bach’s, Handel’s and Gluck’s music took up halves of concerts. Alexander Lvovich pertained to the select few pianists who had preserved and developed the tradition of transcriptions. Of special interest is his work on completion and reconstruction of Schubert’s piano sketches.

From 1952 Alexander Lvovich was a professor of the Gnesins’ State Music pedagogical institute.

At the Gnesins’ Institute Jocheles was the initiator of the lengthy cycle of concerts “The History of the Piano Sonata for 300 Years.”


Alexander Jocheles was an outstanding piano pedagogue. His ability to analyze musical compositions, remarkable ingenuity in searching different variants of fingerings, a wealth of knowledge of music history and culture and phenomenal memory made him into a veritably legendary figure.


The “Melody” record company had released three times A. Jocheles’ pedagogical commentaries to the performance of the following works: J.S. Bach’s “Capriccio on the Departure of his Beloved Brother,” Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Sonata N. 17, opus 31, N. 2 and Johannes Brahms’ Variations on a Theme by Schumann, which enjoyed popularity among students, pedagogues and fans of the art of piano playing.

Recorded 1919-35

That's how we were taught to play in Russia: Rubinstein used to give his historic recitals in Petersburg and Moscow. He used to appear on the stage and say:Every note from Chopin is pure gold. Listen!" And he played and we listened. S.Rachmaninov (from A.J. and E. Swan Memoirs) Throughout his Chopin recordings one feels Rachmaninov's articulation and rhythm as indissoluble components of his true greatness in the repertoire. Indeed colouristically and textually he is fascinating - try the A minor Mazurka - even when he is at his most capricious and the locus classicus of that is his 1930 recording of the B flat minor Sonata. Here he extends the finale in a way not sanctioned - shall we say - by Chopin but the result is one of uplifting power, with Rachmaninov sculpting waves of impetus and not an undifferentiated mf all the way through. For all its recasting his performance of the sonata embraces all its moods, all its power and all its romance. Jonathan Woolf
