Rachmaninov: The Rock
Piano Concerto No.2
8.40: Stravinsky: Scherzo à la Russe
Rachmaninov: Symphonic Dances
Alexandre Tharaud, piano
Vasily Petrenko, conductor
Rachmaninov's sumptuous Symphonic Dances are the sound of a great artist in exile, drenched in joy, regret, and full of wonderful Rachmaninov melodies.
Vasily Petrenko has matched it with Rachmaninov's youthful poem of love and loss, The Rock, and a jazzy scherzo by Rachmaninov's Hollywood neighbour Stravinsky.
