This highly anticipated box set brings together Valery Gergiev's acclaimed cycle of the complete Rachmaninov symphonies, which were recorded alongside the London Symphony Orchestra across 2008 to 2015. These masterful accounts of the Russian's complete symphonies are accompanied by his 1940 composition Symphonic Dances, while two symphonic poems by Mily Balakirev echo the luxurious textures present throughout Rachmaninov's music.
"Gergiev's passion for Rachmaninov is evident in his recordings of the three symphonies with the London Symphony Orchestra...The early Symphony No 1 (1895), so dismally received at its first performance, sits jubilantly and ambitiously in the Russian tradition, equally as stirring as the popular Second Symphony." - The Guardian
