Mariss Jansons, Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra


Mariss Jansons and the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks present a new album of two Rachmaninoff works. Rachmaninoff composed the choral symphony "The Bells" in 1913, using a text by Konstantin Varimont, who translated Edgar Allan Poe's poem into Russian. The sound of bells, which Rachmaninoff had been familiar with since childhood, was the starting point of his creative process, and his attempt to express the four milestones of life through the sound of bells greatly stimulated Rachmaninoff's creative spirit. It is said that Rachmaninoff was so fond of this piece that he even called it "his third symphony" at one point. The other piece, "Symphonic Dances," was composed in 1940 and was Rachmaninoff's last work. Originally conceived as a dance piece, the first movement of this work is a quotation from the "failed" Symphony No. 1, and the theme of Rachmaninoff's beloved "Day of Wrath" appears throughout the piece, creating a mixture of anxiety and fervor. Although Jansons has a wide repertoire, he has only made a few recordings of Rachmaninoff, mainly with Russian orchestras, and this is his first recording with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks.This performance shows the extraordinary confidence of Jansons, who chose "The Bells," a large-scale work with voices, and "Symphonic Dances," a masterpiece from his later years, instead of a symphony or piano concerto.
