I found this to be a very nice selection from Rachmaninoff’s vast compositions. The CD starts out slow with Nina Kotova’s interpretation of the Vocalise No 14 Op 34. However it ends with a romantic dramatic bang with three selections from the Piano Concert No 2 in C minor op. 18. Vladimir Ashkenazy’s interpretation of Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini is also a treat. This collection has some of my favorite Rachmaninoff compositions so I was very pleased with this CD.

Perfect background music for a rainy day, as the title suggests! Whether reading a book, resting, or just plain driving around, this CD is the perfect companion!

Just for the "Rhapsody On A Theme Of Paganini" and "Symphony No. 2" this CD is worth its weight in gold. Just wonderful music in any weather.

There were more 'bad spots' than I had in my original recording. I sent a message to the vendor and Amazon has since given me credit for my purchase.

The music is not quite what i expected, i guess i expected something a lot slower and more relaxing (given the title). Something more like my Brahms lullabye CD or my Beethoven at Bedtime CD.This music is more on the romantic side. But since i like Rachmaninov i dont have a problem with it, i'll just listen to it during the day rather than before bed. One song is way too fast and i just skip over that one rather than listen to it. I would describe all the other songs as romantic or movie theme types.
