About

Following acclaimed performances on tour in Japan and South Korea, Robin Ticciati and the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin have recorded one of Rachmaninovís best-known works. In contrast with the disastrous reception of the First Symphony and the ensuing three-year compositional hiatus, the Second Symphony was a resounding success when it was premiered by the composer in 1908. Its thematic unity, archlike melodic lines, rich orchestral colours and expansive structure still inspire awe, particularly when performed by musicians of the DSOís calibre. The score is presented in its original unabridged version which reveals Rachmaninovís regained confidence in his power to compose and his true symphonic achievement. This exhilarating performance marks Ticciatiís sixth album with the DSO.
