ArtistsAcademic Symphony Orchestra of the St Petersburg Philharmonia
The Rock is Rachmaninov’s first major orchestral opus. He wrote it after the successful completion of his composing studies at the Moscow Conservatory, where he was acknowledged with the gold medal for his opera Aleko. This encouraged him to the composition of his symphonic poem on Mikhail Lermontov’s poem The Rock. Light and dark orchestral tones characterize the conclusion of the poem – Lermontov’s cloud, which cannot stay with the rock but has to leave it going with the wind.
