About

Bringing together music from either end of Rachmaninov's career, this CD opens with the currently unavailable Youth Symphony (unpublished in the composer's lifetime, but regardless of its Tchaikovskian echoes, carrying sentiments of things to come).
 
The Paul Kletzki recording of the wonderful Third Symphony is released for the first time on CD following many requests from enthusiasts and from around the same time in the composer's career, his fourth Piano Concerto.
 
Writing of the Ashkenazy-Previn Rachmaninov partnership in Gramophone, Bryce Morrison concludes: 'Previn works hand in glove with his soloist. Clearly, this is no one-night partnership but the product of the greatest musical sympathy, of a mutual skill and affection... if you want to hear playing which captures Rachmaninov's always elusive, opalescent centre then Ashkenazy is hard to beat. No more personal or deeply felt performances exist.'
 
"A superb recording in an excellent acoustic and with the absolute top-flight of orchestral conductors. Buy it and enjoy - you won't regret it." John Phillips, MusicWeb International.
