BIS present two works composed by Sergei Rachmaninov, featuring virtuoso pianist Yevgeny Sudbin alongside the Singapore Symphony Orchestra under Lan Shui.
Rachmaninov composed Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini after a seven-year silence, and consists of 24 variations taken from Paganini's 24th Caprice for solo violin. The Rhapsody was soon followed by his Third Symphony. Its themes have a marked Russian character used with great subtlety.
Lan Shui and his Singapore Symphony Orchestra here follow their acclaimed 2008 recording of Rachmaninov's Symphony No.2 (BIS-SACD-1712).
The discography of Yevgeny Sudbin includes a Rachmaninov solo recital (BIS-SACD-1518), and a recording of the Fourth Piano Concerto (BIS-SACD-1728).
