That's the Rachmaninoff 3rd with Coates. VH never recorded the
Rachmaninoff 2nd, nor, to the best of my knowledge, did he ever perform
it. I do recall reading that he played through the Rachmaninoff Paganini
Rhapsody with Ivan Davis playing the piano reduction of the orchestral
part. I believe VH was scheduled to record some of the Rachmaninoff two
piano music with the composer, but it never happened. They did play for
Another Horowitz loss...he considered playing the Prokofiev Second
