      Rachmaninoff: Symphonic Dances, Op 45 (34:20)

      Detroit Symphony Orchestra / Leonard Slatkin

      Completed in 1936, two years after the hugely popular Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Rachmaninoff’s Third Symphony was considered by the composer to be one of his finest works. Both this and the Symphonic Dances, his last work, offer a summation of his late style in blending intense rhythmic energy with rich romanticism. Leonard Slatkin and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra’s recording of the Second Symphony was hailed by BBC Music Magazine as “a performance warmed by musicians who clearly love this symphony.”
