Description
"I was only six when I first heard Rachmaninov perform," recalls Wild, "and I attended his concerts regularly for the next 22 years until his death in 1943." Rachmaninov himself left only two transcriptions of his own songs: "Lilacs" and "Daisies." Wild transcribed 13 others, including "O, Cease Thy Singing," "Do Not Grieve," "In the Silent Night," "Floods of Spring," "Dreams," "Midsummer Nights," "The Little Island," "Sorrow in Springtime," and "Where Beauty Dwells."

"He doesn't merely weld the vocal lines onto the original piano accompaniments; instead, he fleshes out the textures in a style very much in keeping with the lush polyphony and galvanic rhythm typical of Rachmaninov's solo keyboard writing…. From the bristling cascades in 'The Little Island' to the wistful long lines and pent-up agitation of the familiar 'Vocalise', Wild's unerring sense of style and utterly natural, singing technique hold your attention…. Definitely one of Earl's Pearls."—Classics Today
