First Award For New Rachmaninov CD
The music magazine Pizzicato has given its Supersonic Award to the last CD of Dimitri Kitaenko's Rachmaninov cycle. This new CD with the Symphony No. 3 Op. 44 and the Symphonic Dances Op. 45 is published by the German label Oehms Classics (#OC 442). The review says: "In these late works by Rachmaninov Dimitri Kitaenko exercises a quite unequalled control over the music. With a sumptuous, tense and colourful sound the Gürzenich Orchestra draws a maximum of atmospheric facets out of the Symphony as well as of the phantasmal Symphonic Dances."
