  • August 31, 2007 One of Rachmaninoff's Best Works

    I had never heard a symphony based on church hymns of any kind before. Rachmaninoff's ability to romanticize church hymns is a mandatory study resource for any composition student seeking to write serious sacred music. This symphony that failed in its premiere performance in 1897 is the one that...

    has won my heart forever. I feel sorry that the composer did not hear this work again, a privilege we now enjoy since it was discovered in St. Petersburg around 1945.
