Sergey Rachmaninov's symphonic career had a rocky start with the premiere of his First Symphony, now recognised as one of the Russian symphonic works of the late 19th century. Both the powerful First Symphony and the gloriously melodic Second, with it's lush harmonic Adagio second movement, are haunted by the Dies irae chant melody. Rachmaninov considered his Third Symphony to be one of his finest works, alongside the exquisitely abd virtuosic Symphonic Dances. The enduring attraction of these symphonies is enhanced by the 'impressive, highly desirable interpretations' (Gramophone) in this acclaimed edition conducted by Leonard Slatkin.
