In looking for the ideal Rach 3 performance on YouTube over the last 3 years I experienced only the inadequacies of the pianists' techniques in the cadenzas--especially the Ossia cadenza--of the greatest pianists of the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Today, after hearing Denis Matsuev's videoed performance, for the first time, I experienced it played with the strength, power, accuracy and the passion all of Rachmoninov's notes held and demanded. To me, his performance is the standard to compare all others by. Matsuev's renditions of solo piano music of Rach. and Scriabin available on the Internet were also revelations.
