 Stunning performance of Rachmaninov’s Symphony No July 5, 2016 By Warren Harris See All My Reviews "This CD features the London Philharmonic Orchestra performing Rachmaninov’s Symphony No. 3, as well as 10 songs arranged by the conductor featuring tenor Vsevolod Grivnov. And it goes without saying (but I’m going to say it anyway) that the horns and strings sound *amazing*. The second movement is particularly pleasing, with swelling strings and beautiful melodies as only Rachmaninov could produce. The third and closing movement ties up the thematic material from the first two, while at the same time The 10 Songs are short pieces sung by Vsevolod Grivnov, and orchestrated by the conductor’s grandfather! The first song presented, “Christ is risen”, is powerfully orchestrated and sung, with just a bit of brimstone at the end of the piece. “Before my window” is just gorgeous, capturing the image of a flowering cherry tree and the fragrance thereof. But of all of the songs, I personally found “Sleep” to be the most captivating, with the familiar “How beautiful it is here” finishing a close second as performed by Mr. Grivnov. This is a wonderful recording, the pairing of Symphony No. 3 and the 10 songs working really well. The liner notes are informative and well written, the sections regarding the orchestration of the 10 songs being particularly interesting. This is a good, solid, enjoyable CD for the Rachmaninoff lover from start to finish. Strongly Recommended." Report Abuse
