      Rachmaninoff: Symphony No 1 in D minor, Op 13: III, Larghetto (9:55); IV, Allegro con fuoco (12:43)

      Detroit Symphony Orchestra / Leonard Slatkin

      This is the third recording from Naxos and the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in the symphonic music of Rachmaninoff. Their latest album features his First Symphony. After the disastrous failure of its premiere in 1897, the work had to wait until after his death before it was reconstructed from the surviving orchestral parts and performed again in 1945. Since then it has taken its rightful place as one of the great Russian symphonic works of the late nineteenth century.
