  2. Evgeny Svetlanov
    Legacy

    Evgeny Svetlanov

    £ 9.99

    May 2012 marks the 10th anniversary of the death of the celebrated Russian conductor, Evgeny Svetlanov. This is a fitting coupling of Rachmaninov’s The Bells and Prokofiev’s Alexander Nevsky, both written by composers closely associated with the conductor. The performance of The Bells was taken from Svetlanov’s last concert in April 2002 - he died just one month later. The Telegraph called it ‘a performance of extraordinary power and intensity’ whilst the Guardian noted that Svetlanov’s admirers had come to hear a ‘Russian musical figurehead who seemed likely to go on forever’.

  3. Evgeny Svetlanov
    Legacy

    Evgeny Svetlanov

    £ 9.99

    The 10th anniversary of the distinguished Russian conductor Evgeny Svetlanov's death was celebrated in May 2012 when ICA Classics released a coupling of Rachmaninov's The Bells - Svetlanov's last concert, and Prokofiev's Alexander Nevsky, two composers very closely associated with the conductor. Rachmaninov was by his own account, Svetlanov's favourite composer and this new 'live' recording of his Symphony No.2 from the Royal Festival Hall in 1993 with the Philharmonia Orchestra appears here for the first time. The recording is in excellent stereo and Svetlanov was at his most exciting when caught live. To complete the CD is a rare 'live' stereo recording of Svetlanov conducting Leonard Bernstein's brilliant Candide Overture from the Edinburgh Festival in 1978. Svetlanov never recorded this in the studio and has never been issued before. ICA has received wonderful reviews for Svetlanov's recordings of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No.1 and... More details

  4. Shura Cherkassky
    Legacy

    Shura Cherkassky

    £ 9.99

    Shura Cherkassy (1909-1995) was one of the greatest piano virtuosos of his time. This WDR studio broadcast sourced from the original master tapes includes a performance of Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini from 1970 in superb stereo. He recorded the work only once in 1953 which was never issued on CD so this recording, along with Prokofiev’s Piano Sonata No.7 (also never recorded commercially) represent two major new works in Cherkassky’s large discography.
