Notes & Reviews:

Under Gianandrea Noseda, the BBC Philharmonic's epic Rachmaninoff series continues with a recording of Symphony No.2, coupled with The Rock. Unlike his First Symphony, Symphony No.2 is standard orchestral repertoire. A recent concert at the Bridgewater Hall, elicited the review, 'Noseda showed his remarkable affinity with Rachmaninoff's style. He combines an ability to sustain the long structures of its emotional climaxes with a vocalistic approach to phrasing which lifts the tunes out of the texture and lets them sing. It's almost operatic in its vividness.' City Life. The accomplished fantasia of 1893, The Rock offers an excellent example of Rimsky-Korsakov's orchestration as acknowledged by Rachmaninoff's original dedication.
