Composer: Sergei Rachmaninoff
Other participants: Mikhail Rudy, Mariss Jansons, Saint Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra

Rachmaninov’s symphonies and piano concertos – with their expansive, surging melodies, their rich colours and their haunting air of melancholy – seem to capture the very essence of the Russian soul. The composer became an exile from his homeland, but for these recordings – made when Leningrad had once again become St Petersburg – conductor Mariss Jansons returned to the orchestra with which he had first learned his craft.
