    Many great sets have been mentioned, but I wouldn't want to miss out on Anna Fedorova's Rach 2nd—a terrific performance with over 20,329,531 well-deserved views. She's a real up and comer.

    I'm far from being a Rach afficionado, but I have the Jansons/Mikhail Rudy orchestral set, and a single concerto CD featuring Andre Watts.

    For his 3rd, I really liked this one by Horowitz growing up. There are some cuts, acoustically it isn't the greatest, but the performance is magical.

    The Pristine/Obert-Thorn rendition of Rachmaninoff's own recordings pretty much sweeps the field for me. Amazingly good sound quality for the period, and my god how the man could play.

    That is one hell of a performance. Good call!

    I started off with just the Ashkenazy/Previn set, And these still hold good as among the best I have heard. More recently I have been pretty darned impressed by Lugansky, Rudy, Sudbin too. And don't forget the wonderful No.4 Michelangeli recorded on EMI, eternally coupled with that stunning Ravel!

    Am I allowed to confess to preferring Rachmaninov's Symphonies etc to these works, though....?

    Nine pages and no mention of this one. Must be a dog.

    To be fair Fritz, topic is old, that said, the Daniil Trifonov makes a very good impression.
