"Gergiev seems to communicate a darker side to this music"    *****

Audiophile Audition (US)
 


                    Editor’s Choice

"This Rachmaninov finds the London Symphony Orchestra warm and irresistibly propulsive ... Gergiev has a feel for the romantic urgency of the music as well as its lyrical impulse and the LSO responds as though its life depended upon it"

Gramophone
 


"...has tremendous ebb and flow ... breathtakingly beautiful string playing. I greedily anticipate the release of the other symphonies in due course"

International Record Review


" ...’the sweep of emotion that runs through all four movements is as polished as it is inexorable. The opening movement unfolds like an inbound tide, the waves of voluptuous sound building with a potency that is rich and sonorous. Contrast that with the heightened energy of the second movement, the familiar glow of the Adagio, and the fiery control of the finale, and you have a performance with Gergiev’s fingerprint all over it’     *****

The Scotsman

 


’As you would expect with the charismatic Valery Gergiev on the conductor’s platform, this performance of Rachmaninov’s opulent symphony is full of long sweeping gestures, at times a little moody, but packed full of the feel of spontaneity that comes from a "live" recording. He allows the slow movement ample time to beguile the ears and turns up the heat for an exciting finale. The London Symphony respond perfectly to his many subtle rhythmic infections, the playing in the superlative class. Good sound generous in detail’

‘...a wonderful new LSO Live recording’

Chicago Tribune


‘...a fine performance, well engineered’
