Episode 175: Sergei Rachmaninov as a soloist and an accompanist.

the rerun of this programme will be on Thursday morning 19 November 2020 from 11 to 12am. Because of the coronavirus crisis, also this episode has been recorded in the absence of Louis Thörig, and in Geoffrey’s own studio instead of in Marco Wensveen’s studio.
