Orchestra – The Boston Symphony Orchestra. Sleeve Notes – Samuel Chotzinoff. Sergei Vasilyevich Rachmaninoff, Byron Janis, Charles Munch, Sinfónica De Boston. Sergei Vasilyevich Rachmaninoff, Byron Janis, Charles Munch, Sinfónica De Boston - Concierto Para Piano No. 3 (LP, "Ne).
Janis in the N. plays fast, but uninspired and didn't seem to have the chemistry he had with the Chicago Symphony. Maybe he wanted to leave in a hurry because of the brass section. It wasn't a bad recording of the Concerto N., just not the best. Nevertheless, this album is absolutely worth getting b/c of the Concerto No. 1. Once again these recordings were digitally remastered from an excellent RCA Living Stereo source. Performers: Byron Janis, piano Chicago Symphony Orchestra Fritz Reiner, conductor Boston Symphony Orchestra, Charles Munch, conductor.

Alsatian conductor Charles Munch was one of the most widely recorded symphonic conductors of the twentieth century. Here is a partial list of his recordings. 1948 Brahms: Violin Concerto in D major, O. 7 Violinist: Ossy Renardy, also released by LYS. 1948 Saint-Saëns: Danse macabre Violinist: Ossy Renardy. 1968 Berlioz: Requiem, Op. 5 with the Bavarian Radio and Television Orchestra Chorus and Soloist: Peter Schreier.
The disc-mate is Byron Janis playing the Rachmaninov Third with the BSO under Charles Munch, a considerably older recording. A Horowitz protege, Janis used to charge at Russian music with twice the fierceness of the real Russians. Munch sets a fast pace, considerably faster than what we hear today-no dawdling or sentimentality here. The whole point is to get the fireworks going as fast as possible, and Janis doesn't disappoint. His flying fingerwork is clear, pointed, and a bit brusque.
