Symphonies Nos. 2 and 3

Symphonies Nos. 2 and 3

At the end of the Rachmaninoff cycle, Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Philadelphia Orchestra introduce the composer for his part.

The Rachmaninoff Cycle with the Philadelphia Orchestra enters its final curve. After the Piano Concertos and the First Symphony, the Second and Third Symphonies as well as “Die Toteninsel” are now available on the final double album. Yannick Nézet-Séguin can count on his sovereign and resonant orchestral organ orchestrating every coveted twist as it pleases. Urgency certainly isn’t the top priority on this recording, as Nzette Seguin relies on formal tempo, as if it were important to savor each color individually, each transition perfectly. Especially in the slow movement of the Second Symphony, it takes a lot of dramatic subtlety for the whole thing not to fall apart at the end, but here everyone involved gets the bend very subtly. Overall, it is a Rachmaninoff arioso, vocal and often measured, most likely in the third finale with an emphasis on wind instruments.
