Sergei Rachmaninoff’s symphonic works hold a special place in the story of one of America’s greatest musical ensembles. The Philadelphia Orchestra and its Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin are about to add a thrilling new chapter with the launch of a cycle of Rachmaninoff’s three symphonies and other orchestral scores for Deutsche Grammophon. The first album pairs the early Symphony No.1 with the Symphonic Dances, Rachmaninoff’s last major composition, written for and dedicated to the Philadelphia Orchestra and its then conductor Eugene Ormandy.
