  1. Evgeny Svetlanov
    Legacy

    Evgeny Svetlanov

    £ 9.99

    The performance of Tchaikovsky's Symphony No.1 in April 2002 with the BBCSO was the last concert he gave before his death two months later. Svetlanov's studio made Tchaikovsky recordings with the USSR Symphony Orchestra for Melodiya in the 1960's were the cornerstones of the catalogue at the time and he brings an unqualified authority to the Barbican concert recorded here. Svetlanov’s account of Stravinsky's Firebird is superbly detailed and imaginative with the Philharmonia in tremendous form. The digital sound recorded in the Barbican for both performances is totally natural and warm. These live recordings are issued for the first time on CD. More details

    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.
