About

Anton Rubinstein was a celebrated piano virtuoso, sought-after conductor, and – on the side – one of the most successful composers of his times. His Symphony No.2, the “Ocean Symphony”, experienced more than two hundred performances when it was first written, statistics matched by hardly any other work.

Now, at 2 CDs for the price of 1, MDG is re-releasing this symphony and other top-quality compositions by this Russian romanticist from the rich repertoire of its many years of extremely successful cooperation with the Wuppertal Symphony Orchestra. Alban Gerhardt, largely unknown at the time, created a tremendous sensation with Rubinstein’s Cello Concerto.
