Following his acclaimed LSO Live recordings of Rachmaninov s Symphony No 2 and 'Symphonic Dances', Valery Gergiev conducts a scintillating performance of the powerfully emotional Symphony No 3, framed with a work by one of the Mighty Five: Balakirev s 'Russia'. Rachmaninov s third and final symphony was composed nearly 20 years after the composer s emigration from his homeland. Often considered to be his most overtly Russian symphony, Rachmaninov makes subtle use of a motto theme which appears throughout the work and can be heard in the finale as a variant of the Dies Irae plainchant a melodic tag used in Rachmaninov s music as a dark reminder of mortality. 'Russia', an epic symphonic poem, is a reworking of an Overture on Russian Themes, collected during Balakirev s expedition up through the Volga. It was composed in 1864 and is based on three folksongs a slow wedding song and two round-dances which are varied, fragmented and combined throughout the piece. Gergiev's Rachmaninov cycle is due for completition in Spring 2016.
