It's PAXMAHIHOB in Cyrillic, with the "I" looking like a backward "N".

What looks like "P" is "R" (CCCP was SSSR to us).
What looks like "H" is "N".
The throat-clearing "X" is transliterated more commonly "CH" or more traditionally "KH".
The "B" is the Cyrillic equivalent of "V", and as a final consonant pronounced "F", or "FF" for emphasis.

Thus the variety of spellings we see.

my first thought on seeing that was "wow! Pac Man hob!",
but then I realized his name is actually PeaceMan Hob.

[quote="Catmando"]

I've only hear one or two excerpts of his music, but he is one composer I wish to explore the works of eventually.

In that case, I thoroughly recommend the disc I've mentioned. After a bit of exposure to Rachy, you might like to try PC 3. It's quite something, but I wouldn't suggest it for a novice in Rachmaninoff's music.

The little I've heard has been at RBC Scholarship contests, played by highschool seniors. Interesting music.

Last night there was a storm coming through the area and I had to power off all the computers and other appliances.

Tonight? Sorry, but the Patriots are playing tonight! Maybe tomorrow night; it will give you time to come up with a plan to beat me. :flex:

Au contraire. Paganini Variations and Symphonic Dances are first rate, as are Concerti 2 & 3, Symphonies 1 & 2. The brooding Isle of the Dead is worth a try. I love it because it's based on a painting of the same name. Rachmaninov did a remarkable job of capturing the mood. The Preludes in C# Minor and G Minor are great. His Suite #1 for 2 pianos has a "Russian Easter" ending. It sounds a bit like "minimalism", but it's good (and brief). There must be more, but these come to mind immediately as not-to-be-missed.
