About

Earlier releases on the Guild Historic label featuring Sir Malcolm Sargent have earned much critical praise, and we now present a new compilation of Sargent conducting Rachmaninov, an interpreter of which he was particularly noted for.

Sargent's orchestration of the Prelude in C sharp minor dates from the early 1930s. This superb recording with the London Symphony Orchestra will come as a revelation to many.

Cyril Smith was a great British pianist who knew Rachmaninov, but a stroke in 1956 curtailed his career - this record of the Second Concerto shows him at the height of his career.

Rachmaninov's Third Symphony under Sargent is another fine performance.
