No, it should never be called a “recording session“. What recording sessions are usually about is being extra cautious, hitting all the right notes at the right time, clean, clinical 🙂 Since it was a self-funded “enterprise” operating on a shoestring budget , I could afford a little tiny bit more risk ;  -) Nothing to lose other than a house ( and thank you, friendly bank, for letting me borrow money against my house ). After such a decision playing Rach #3 is not really scary 🙂 Particularly with great London Symphony Orchestra, arguably the one of the very best on this planet. And with equally brave brilliant maestro Michael Francis – who at that time was “doubling” as a double-bass player at LSO , now heading skywards with a major conducting career:-)
