Notes and Editorial Reviews
Recorded live at the Barbican Hall, London September 2008 - February 2015

This highly anticipated box set brings together Valery Gergiev’s acclaimed cycle of the complete Rachmaninov symphonies, which were recorded alongside the London Symphony Orchestra across 2008 to 2015. These masterful accounts of the Russian’s complete symphonies are accompanied by his 1940 composition Symphonic Dances, while two symphonic poems by Mily Balakirev echo the luxurious textures present throughout Rachmaninov’s music.
