Notes & Reviews:

As as composer, Rachmaninov was the last of the great Russian masters of the late nineteenth century. In addition to his well-known concertos and symphonies, the orchestral fantasy "The Rock" and especially his Choral Symphony masterpiece "The Bells" are works of dramatic atmosphere achieved through superb orchestration. Using a Russian version of Edgar Allen Poe's "The Bells", Rachmaninov creates a unique sound-world using orchestra, chorus and vocal soloists to fascinating effect.
