Rachmaninoff: Symphonic Dances; Stravinsky: Symphony in Three Movements – London Symphony Orchestra, Valery Gergiev

The Symphonic Dances, an orchestral suite in three movements, was the last work that Rachmaninoff completed, and proved one of his most popular compositions. Although rarely sentimental, it draws on many reminiscences of Russia, whence he had emigrated in 1917. It is characteristically lyrical with vivacious rhythmic sections, and thus recalls Stravinsky’s Le Sacre du printemps and the composer’s own Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini.

Gergiev couples the Symphonic Dances with another work in three movements by a Russian émigré to the USA. Written in 1942 – 45, the Symphony in Three Movements was the first work that Stravinsky completed after his arrival in the USA. Although he claimed that it was a ‘War Symphony’, his true inspiration was typically vague.



 "...this new release is highly recommedable for its fantastic playing and sound. For the Rachmaninoff alone, it is worth the purchase price, and we can hope the LSO plans to release more recordings of his symphonies and tone poems."

Brian Buerkle - American Record Guide - November/December 2012



"Both pieces are well suited to Valery Gergiev’s interpretive talents, and with the LSO on blistering form those reasons alone should make these accounts ones to be reckoned with"

SA-CD.net
 


"Valery Gergiev is one of the most exciting conductors recording today. His previous Rachmaninoff Second Symphony for LSO Live was a knockout, and both of these symphonic works will likely take first place of multichannel options" *****
