Rachmaninov: Symphony No. 3, Symphonic Dances
BBC Music Magazine
Pletnev and the recently founded Russian National Orchestra do a splendid job throughout [these] two works ... . They bring an operatic intensity to the first two movements of the Third Symphony. ... They are also extremely persuasive in the more meditative parts of the first of the Symphonic Dances and are certainly alive to the irony which suffuses much of the faster music. ... The many qualities of this excellently recorded issue place it in a high category.
