    Even if I get the big 32-DC box, there is little overlap with this but for the symphonies and concertos (different conductors though).
    $9.49 https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00V63E05G/
    or $8.99 www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07HR5JMZR/
    appears the same thing

    Rachmaninoff playing a 1909 Steinway recreated by computer:

    Going to have my music major co-worker give it a listen and see if he thinks it captures Rachmaninoff. My co-worker has a full-sized grand piano in his living room, very into playing piano, and a big fan of Rachmaninoff.

    Zenph employs a software application that analyzes a recorded piano performance by separating its pianistic attributes from mechanical and environmental factors to an unprecedented degree of specificity and refinement. The information then is encoded to high-definition MIDI files that are played through a piano equipped to do so.

    This is a single, nearly 4-hour-long, solo piano work.

    Dearborn Music today on 25% sale. After sale prices $5.99, $5.99, and $ 6.74 (Aleko brand new and with $17.94 sticker that was yellowing with age, but because I found it for $8.95 on Amazon shipped from Dearborn Music, they gave me the $8.98 when I called in and had them set it aside).
