"...The Detroit players have a sure instinct for the poignancy and sighs of the music, for its intricate but lucifly wovn fabric and also for its passion and drive. Details of the scoring, so critical in any Rachmaninov interpretation, are tellingly etched here in the context of a perceptively choosen spectrum of dynamics..."

"Leonard Slatkin’s Vox Rachmaninov cycle was one of his most successful early series of recordings, and he still has the measure of this music. The key to the Third Symphony lies in not playing it like the Second. Slatkin clearly understands this. Through it all the Detroit Symphony plays the music about as beautifully as it can be done, and Naxos’ engineering is excellent ... these performances are solid winners that will reward repeated listening."
