Rachmaninov Piano Concerto No. 2

 Alexander Vedernikov   Conductor 
 Boris Giltburg  Piano                                                         
 Rachmaninov  Piano Concerto No. 2
 Schubert  Symphony No. 9

Rachmaninov's most popular concerto and Schubert's final symphony invite the listener to settle back and lose sense of time: to relax, breathe out and let themselves be swept along.

Opening gestures can say a lot. The tolling piano chords in the first bars of Rachmaninov’s second concerto are iconic in their own right, presaging a tempestuous journey and a heady romance. And the horn-call that launches Schubert’s final masterpiece is the perfect gesture for a work that delights in the majesty of nature. Both works are broad and generous in their design, sweeping the listener up in exultant long lines.
