Celebrating over seventy years on the concert stage, Ruth Slenczynska is one of the great piano legends of this century. Recorded in concert in St. Louis, Missouri on April 8, 1984, this disc features rarely heard works by Haydn and Copland, along with searing interpretations of Chopin's B minor Sonata and Brahms' B minor Rhapsody. Her recital also features her authoritative performances of eight Rachmaninov preludes (Ms. Slenczynska studied with Rachmaninov!).

Reviews
"Yet another record by Ruth Slenczynska - this time a recital given at Christ Church Cathedral, St. Louis, Missouri, on April 8, 1984. The Haydn sonata is crisp and cleanly articulated, striking a nice balance between Brendel's Beethovenian weightiness and Gould's contrapuntal brittleness. The Brahms Rhapsody begins with thick, opening chords, impeccably played and given their full weight. In the Rachmaninoff preludes - notably Op. 23 No. 4 and 6 with their aching Slavic melancholy, Slenczynska's playing affected me as it has in the past." - American Record Guide
