Vladimir Ashkenazy Conducts Rachmaninov Symphony No.1 (Preview #2)

In three new upcoming album releases, the Philharmonia Orchestra and its Conductor Laureate, Vladimir Ashkenazy, present Rachmaninov’s three symphonies and his Symphonic Dances, recorded live in concert at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall. Performed across 2015 and 2016, Ashkenazy brings to life the music of a composer who, like him, felt his Russian identity deeply and yet spent so much of his life away from his homeland. In this preview, hear the awe-inspiring pomp of the final movement of Rachmaninov’s First Symphony, featured on the first disc. It is now available for pre-order, ahead of its international release on Friday 1 September 2017. Click here to pre-order your copy: http://hyperurl.co/rachmaninovsymphony1
