Notes & Reviews:

Major choral and orchestral works by Rachmaninoff in one album from Melodiya. Gramophone endorsed wholeheartedly former issues: "always something special about a Russian performance. The slavonic fervour and natural intensity of the singing, both solo and choral, give a gripping added immediacy here to The Bells ... an added edge is the inclusion of the stirring cantata called Spring: an immediately attractive piece quite superbly sung by its baritone soloist, Sergei Yakovenko - indeed, the whole performance is unforgettable, both dramatically and vocally. 1st choice 'Bells' in survey" Oct 2009 all recordings.

Notes & Reviews:
