Edo de Waart

Rachmaninov, Mussorgsky, Prokofiev: Orchestral Works (4CD)

A newly compiled, generous, 4CD collection of high-octane Russian orchestral masterpieces, celebrating the hundredth anniversary of the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra and the firebrand musicianship of Dutch maestro Edo de Waart.

He recorded the Symphonic Dances with the London Philharmonic in 1972 and in the following year he made his debut LP in Rotterdam with a personal, LP-length selection of excerpts from Prokofiev’s ballet, Romeo and Juliet. There followed, in December 1974, the Mussorgsky Pictures and then these powerfully built, authentically volatile accounts of the Rachmaninov symphonies between 1976 and 1978: recordings that made de Waart’s reputation and still stand up well to the competition today.
