In 1907, Rachmaninov had withdrawn with his family to Dresden in order to work in complete isolation. This is where the Second Symphony was created—a work brimming with unadulterated emotion, virtuosic instrumental passages and alternately stormy and romantic undertones. As usual, the Budapest Festival Orchestra’s reading of the masterpiece demonstrates brilliant attention to detail and emotional depth, making this a definitive recording of Rachmaninov’s work. “Ivan Fischer's performances are so carefully considered and are played with such refinement and control by the Budapest orchestra, that they more than justify the release. Fischer's pacing is unerring; he lets the drama in both symphony and overture catch fire slowly, with the result that the final climaxes are unequivocal, while providing endless perfectly articulated detail along the way.” –The Guardian
