The world premiere of Reinhold Glière's monumental third symphony in March 1912 was a culture-political event of the utmost importance in Russia. abriel Feltz presents this remarkable work in cooperation with the Beogradska filharmonija and makes it clear that this most interesting late-romantic composer is well worth a closer look.

 "Bröder manages to musically capture the ambiguity, which is the earmark of this piece, giving it atmospheric form. This is exactly as opera music should be: individual and autonomous, bang up to date, striking in its expressivity, but always orientated towards the goal of portraying a gripping story in a dramatically coherent way." Werner Häußner in Der neue Merker

"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

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. 

 

 "This may well be the best performance yet.“  Steven Kruger in New York Arts

"Gabriel Feltz and his Dortmunders play as if the ink on the score were still wet.. .The playing is outstanding.“ Kal Rubinson in stereophile

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.
