André Previn (b.1929) is often hailed as one of the world’s most versatile musicians. The recipient of ten Grammy awards for his recordings, he has conducted many of the world’s top orchestras, both in concert performances and in the studio.

All three of the performances on this DVD took place during Previn’s tenure as Principal Conductor of the LSO – the Prokofiev was filmed as part of the popular BBC television

series ‘André Previn’s Music Night’. This footage of Rachmaninov’s ‘The Bells’ documents the first Proms performance of this work in 1973, featuring three stellar British singers, Sheila Armstrong, Robert Tear and John Shirley-Quirk and a precise and energetic London Symphony Chorus.

The Penguin Guide describes Previn’s performance of ‘The Bells’ on EMI, recorded just two years after the performance on this DVD, as ‘powerful’ due to his ‘concentration on purely musical values [which] adds much as on the evocation of atmosphere’. Previn used the same three soloists.

This is the first DVD release of this material.

“Previn produces a blazing account of Rachmaninov's The Bells for its 1973 Proms premiere. A sparkling Lieutenant Kije and effervescent Candide Overture too.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2012 ****

“a evocative piece of nostalgia...[The solo] singing is of a searing emotional intensity. The chorus sing with a passion. The LSO are on top form. Brian Large's visual direction is commendably unfussy, homing in on instruments as and when but chiefly leaving the performance to speak for itself - which it does with the utmost eloquence coupled with visceral excitement.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2012

Rachmaninov: Symphony No. 2 in E minor, Op. 27

Rachmaninov: Symphony No. 2 in E minor, Op. 27


Rachmaninov drafted his Second Symphony in a charming garden villa in Dresden, where he had settled with family in late 1906; he told his friend Nikita Morozov in February 1907 of ‘a mood of anguish, apathy and disgust at what I’ve been doing in my work’. Rumours of a new symphony were true, he added, but he had put it aside for a while because it had become ‘terribly boring and repulsive’ to him. Once past the complex first movement, however, each of the remaining three came to life in a matter of weeks, and the work in toto is a worthy successor to Tchaikovsky’s symphonies, as well as an intriguing example of a new cosmopolitanism in European orchestral work, no less than the Eastern influences being absorbed at the time by Mahler and Debussy.

The second movement can to our ears now sound like Bruckner meets John Williams; that kind of cinematic breadth has assured the slow movement and its famous clarinet tune of immortality and a special place even among the work of one of the most assured of last century’s melodists. Underneath, however, is that surging melancholy and longing for an elusive homeland that characterises all of Rachmaninov’s greatest music.

Valery Gergiev is a renowned master of such qualities, pre-eminent among modern Russian conductors and unrivalled in his commitment to Russian music old and new. This recording was made with ‘his’ orchestra of the Mariinsky Theatre, St Petersburg.

“As in his opera recordings, Gergiev gives a strong and well-paced reading. Although he takes what one might think of as a more traditional approach, he brings an appropriate warmth and also possesses considerable command of the architecture.” Penguin Guide, 2003/4 Edition
