I forgot to mention, the first is quite nice as well.. highly virtuosic of course, but highly musical. Kerpal's recording is unbelievably.. but the Neil O'Doan recording from the PianoSociety website is quite nice as well.

I just checked that recording. Where's the end of the first movement? :shock:the cadenza is like my favourite thing in all of music and it wasn't there :cry:. I didn't like the orchestra, the conducter turned the exciiting orchestral passages into a bit of a drag. The soloist seemed quite good but I general base alot of my opinion of their performance on the cadenza :|

It's awesome. If you look around on that site, there's also Volodos' LIVE Rach 3 (well you can hear coughing occasionally) which is brilliant and is my favourite too. And Rachs Rach 4, lol.

Pletnev's Rach 1 is great, one of my favourites but still behind Janis and Rachmaninoff imo.

I haven't heard Janis. Rachs recording is probably better, but I take points off for sound quality so its about the same as Pletnev. ;)
