Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 3 exudes an essential Russianness reacting both to the country’s distinctive character and the exiled composer’s nostalgia for the homeland he had left in 1917. Contrastingly, the natural beauty of Rachmaninoff’s country estate, Ivanovka, is evoked in 10 Songs, delicately orchestrated by the grandfather of the London Philharmonic Orchestra’s Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor Vladimir Jurowski. Jurowski conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra in this fascinating combination of works.
