Composer: Sergei Rachmaninov

A sumptuous Rachmaninov collection built around the piano concertos – interpreted by Nikolai Lugansky (“Rachmaninov just doesn’t get any better than this,” declared the Guardian on hearing him in Concerto No. 2) – and the symphonies, performed by André Previn and the London Symphony Orchestra, a team celebrated in the Russian Romantic repertoire. Gramophone judged Previn’s advocacy of the Symphony No. 2 “among his most enduring contributions to our musical life”.
