Notes & Reviews:

The catastrophic failure of the St. Petersburg world premiere of his First Symphony on 15 March 1897 plunged Sergei Rachmaninoff into a profound depression. It was only the intervention of renowned psychiatrist Nikolai Dahl that liberated the composer from his creative crisis. In 1906 Rachmaninoff began work on his Second Symphony. As part of its ongoing Rachmaninoff cycle with the Gu¨rzenich Orchestra of Cologne and Dmitrij Kitajenko, OehmsClassics presents the Symphony No. 2 and the ever-popular Vocalise, sung by countertenor Valer Sabadus.

I did enjoy the recording: the music itself is glorious, the orchestra gorgeous, and the sound excellent. I seriously wonder if real romantic readings are ever going to happen again. The Vocalise sounds very beautiful with this gorgeous countertenor voice. I'm almost tempted to keep the disc just for that.
