Notes & Reviews:

"This is a very impressive Rachmaninov 2nd. Paavo Jarvi's lithe, athletic phrasing and generally brisk tempos keep the energy level high while generating much excitement in the outer movements. The first movement is brisk and dramatic thanks to Jarvi's overall light approach, while the Finale skips along happily. The Adagio is the performance's high-point, as Jarvi adopts a flowing pace that turns urgent in the central section leading to the big climax. He also reveals much interesting (usually unheard) inner detail (bassoons, stopped horns). The Finale is the same in this respect, and as the performance focuses your attention on Rachmaninov's brilliant orchestration you become aware of the sonic similarities between this work and the later Third Symphony." -Classics Today
