Format: Paperback
Many people are familiar with the 18th variation of "Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini" from the movie "Somewhere in Time." It's a very romantic piece. If you familiar with the 18th variation only, you should treat yourself to listening to all the variations played back to back in the "Rhapsody."
This book has those variations which have been reduced by Rachmaninoff for two pianos/four hands. I wish, of course, it had been a piano solo, because I would probably get a lot more use out of it.
"Rhapsody" is strictly for the advanced pianist. This edition has no fingering notations which would have been helpful for all except the most advanced players. And, those players may find Rachmaninoff's "Rhapsody" not as challenging or rewarding because of the repetition involved in its themes. However, I find "Rhapsody" very rewarding to play largely due to its romantic themes and its capacity for expressive interpretations. The 18th variation played by itself is an enjoyable recital piece. I give this book my highest recommendation.

A very detailed, intricate piece of music. I give this a 10 star rating out of 5. You will love this work, in fact this is the very first piece of music from Rachmaninoff I heard and it caused my heart to swell and fall in love with his creations...

I did not realize this was of the entire concerto. It is, so then I had to search for the most popular section/portion. That took a bit of doing. Finally, I attempted to play. It is very difficult. I was not up to the challenge but perhaps you will be.

The piece itself is great, as you might already know. This edition of the score is clean and clear, and I feel very comfortable reading it.
