Andre Previn’s name has become synonymous with the work. In this, his latest version, the interpretation is more daringly expansive and slower to evolve than ever before - he takes nearly eight minutes longer than the more urgent Ashkenazy on Decca - but ultimately the conviction of the performance wins through. The playing is a delight -sample the clarinet solo in the long adagio, surely one of the loveliest tunes ever written, critics notwithstanding! With a generous ambience, natural balance, and 'bloom' so characteristic of Telarc productions, the recording perfectly complements the performance.

Jansons embraces Rachmaninoff’s riveting, turbulent Second Symphony in this sympathetic interpretation. Although written during the composer’s three-year stay in Germany, the symphony conjures the blustery winters and frenzied urban life of St. Petersburg, where it was premiered in 1908. Containing the charm and emotional depth of the composer’s finest large-scale movements, the “Allegro molto” sounds stunningly fresh, especially under the fingers of the exceptionally inspired, almost possessed, Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. The Adagio is ecstatically romantic, emblematic of Rachmaninoff’s profoundly saccharine style.

"What’s the matter with them Billy? They sit there like a lot of stuffed pigs!" Elgar commented to his friend W.H Reid, the leader of the Queen’s Hall Orchestra after the chilly reception given to the 2nd Symphony at its premiere in 1911. More emotionally complex and ambiguous than the first symphony, the 2nd seems to hint at the apocalyptic events that would be unleashed just three years on. "Be like a woman dropping a flower on a man’s grave" wrote the composer of the ‘Spirit of Delight' theme in the coda of the second movement.
