Dortmunder Philharmoniker
Gabriel Feltz

Catalog number: 21105

"Rachmaninoff’s third symphony communicates, in a very moving way, the life-long struggle of one of Russia’s greatest musicians with this genre. The result is… absolutely magnificent: the musical inspiration is overflowing; the themes and melodies are, as always by Rachmaninoff, inimitable; but more especially, the many changes of mood, achieved by an extremely artistic instrumentation, are unique." Gabriel Feltz

Catalog number: 21100

Right up to the present day Sergei Rachmaninoff’s works are all too easily characterised as being “romantic salon music”. Especially just after the Second World War Rachmaninoff’s long melodic phrases and the voluptuous sound of his compositions were often regarded as being somewhat dubious. Even today many critics hold his music to be sentimental and ornate. These judgements and characterisations are, however, often made taking only a very small part of Rachmaninoff’s complete oeuvre into account. A large part of this is, even today, scarcely known in Germany. The First Symphony, which he composed at the age of 22, is one of these works. It gives us a completely new perspective on this supposedly well-known composer.

Rachmaninow at its finest!
With this brilliant recording of the 2nd Symphony the Dortmund Philharmonic, under its conductor Gabiel Feltz, has started off its recording cycle of all Rachmaninow’s symphonies.
In Gabriel Feltz, winner of the “Prix Rachmanonow”, the orchestra has a recognized authority on Rachamaninow’s music. The orchestra has put in a magnificent performance and the recording team from Tritonus has done fantastic work. A wonderful start, captured on SACD. Mr. Feltz's extensive discography continues to show him as one of the outstanding conductors of his generation.

 

Ludwig van Beethoven
Sinfonie Nr. 3 „Eroica“ | Sinfonie Nr. 5
Stuttgarter Philharmoniker | Gabriel Feltz

catalog number: 21088

The Third and Fifth symphonies do not each include the discursive spirit so typical for Beethoven, moreover they seem, in some way, to communicate with one another. In the “Eroica” the four movements are all independent and very different, whereas the individual movements of the Fifth are connected by the ‘knocking motif’ which appears in differing form, but is always clear and meaningful. Looked at in this way both works represent two differing answers by Beethoven to the question which is posed in each musical epoch as to what actually constitutes a symphony.
