“The great modern Rachmaninov cycle.” (Répertoire).

This box brings together Rachmaninov’s three symphonies, towering examples of the genius of one of the Romantic period’s most popular exponents. These soaringly beautiful epics are coupled with the early and

less well-known) works Prince Rostislav and the so-called ‘Youth Symphony’ as well as the composer’s own arrangement for orchestra of Vocalise, possibly his most well-loved piece.

The interpretations by Owain Arwel Hughes, conducting the Royal Scottish National Orchestra, were highly praised at the original release (as single discs) of these recordings in 2002 and 2003, as testified by the following quotations:

“Hughes is the first conductor to convince me that the First Symphony is on a par with its two successors.” (International Record Review)

“A major surprise, this immensely moving and poetic version has made itself a place at the very top of the discography.” (Symphony No. 2 – Répertoire)

“Refined and thoughtful ... bringing out the beauty of sound with exceptionally clear textures.” (Symphony No. 3 – Gramophone)
