Pavel Kogan Conducts Rachmaninov
We have a series of single CDs covering the Symphonies and orchestral works of Rachmaninov with the Moscow State Symphony Orchestra which garnered a rave review from Gramophone:
Vibrant, soulful, sparky, strongly communicative Rachmaninov – and a bargain to boot
Pavel Kogan (son of virtuoso fiddler Leonid) molds genuinely compelling, authentically tangy accounts of these Rachmaninov masterworks, penetrating to the core of their homesick melancholy with often devastating candour.
Kogan is not afraid to take risks, and I particularly adore the way he teases out and caresses the Third Symphony.
