Rachmaninov Symphonic Dances

Prokofiev's Haydn-inspired Classical Symphony sits alongside the Romantic lyricism of his First Violin Concerto with soloist Frank Peter Zimmermann.

Rachmaninov's electrifying Symphonic Dances are filled with spinning rhythms, sonorous melodies and patterned with musical influences from folk music, Russian Orthodox chants and even an eerie parody of the Viennese waltz.
