Following the critically acclaimed and award winning recordings of choral masterpieces Rossini: Stabat Mater and Verdi: Requiem, Conductor Antonio Pappano leads the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in this brand new recording of the 20th century’s most thrilling and emotive symphonies, Sergei Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 2. Coupled with Anatoly Liadov’s beautiful tone poem The Enchanted Lake, this release marks a return to symphonic music, which suits their passionate, sophisticated and virtuosic talents.
Music director of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and the Orchestra of the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome and exclusive EMI Classics recording artist, Antonio Pappano is one of the most brilliant and respected conductors in the worlds of opera and classical music. This recording is the first symphonic recording by Pappano and Santa Cecilia since 2007’s Respighi: Roman Trilogy.
