Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 2 in E minor, Played by the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, Conducted by Neeme Järvi

My beloved John Wilson conducted this masterpiece with the London Symphony Orchestra in 2017.

Said Classical Source: “The LSO was behind Wilson in every particular; the conductor’s technique is immaculate, expressive and detailed, and curiously—for this member of the audience—the one conductor Wilson reminded me of was André Previn: clear, crisp and beautifully controlled. The result was a performance of considerable and consistent stature: one is often amazed at the quality of the LSO—on this occasion, as just one example, the woodwind chording was breathtaking, though I found the timpani more than a shade overbearing—it was difficult to identify which note was being played.”
