- Andrew Marriner (Clarinet)
Notes & Reviews:
Rozhdestvensky and the LSO perform one of the most notable recordings of Rachmaninov's second symphony, receiving lavish praise from major review publications. This is the full version of this symphony, uncut and with repeat in the first movement.
'Plenty of vitality. Big string melodies blossoming voluptuously. The slow movement, after a beguiling opening clarinet, has a climax of spacious intensity, its power almost overwhelming. A most satisfying account. (***)' - Penguin Guide
`A spacious reading on the biggest scale, the ebb and flow of rubato and tension always spontaneously convincing helped by the spectacularly ample recording with full bass and sumptuous strings. The brooding opening, under-pinned with Russian melancholy, immediately sets the romantic feeling' - GramophoneNotes & Reviews:
