This highly anticipated box set brings together Valery Gergiev’s acclaimed cycle of the complete Rachmaninov
symphonies, which were recorded with the London Symphony Orchestra from 2008 to 2015. These masterful
accounts of the Russian’s complete symphonies are accompanied by his 1940 composition Symphonic Dances, while
two symphonic poems by Mily Balakirev echo the luxurious textures present throughout Rachmaninov’s music.

‘The LSO plays, as always, splendidly for Valery Gergiev. The general excellence and detail of their performance is remarkable.’ - BBC Music Magazine (Symphony No.1)

‘This Rachmaninov finds the London Symphony Orchestra warm and irresistibly propulsive... Andrew Marriner’s almost introverted account of the great clarinet solo is beautifully accompanied, a real heart stopper’
- Gramophone Editor’s Choice (Symphony No.2)

‘The band is on its best form, the playing imbued with affection and nostalgia as well as verve and drive.’
- The Sunday Times (Symphony No.3)

‘These symphonic works will likely take first place of multichannel options.’ - Audiophile Audition (Symphonic Dances)

Recorded live at the Barbican Hall, London, September 2008–February 2015
