Notes & Reviews:

Rachmaninov considered "The Bells" to be one of his favorite compositions. The piece's four movements portray the stages of human existence in a life-to-death cycle through the metaphor of bell sounds. With this new release, Mikhail Pletnev and the Russian National Orchestra complete their acclaimed survey of Rachmaninov's symphonic output. Tanyev's "John of Damascus" is a perfect addition, rounding out an album that easily comes with the highest recommendation.
