One of the best of modern ensembles, the Russian National Orchestra, under the baton of the Uruguayan-born conductor José Serebrier, delivers an exemplary concert performance of Rachmaninov's lively Choral Symphony Op.35, "The Bells" with the Moscow State Chamber choir. Also on the program are works by Glazunov, Shostakovich and Mussorgsky, as well as more Rachmaninov. The proceedings are captured in a sparkling, vivid live recording made at the closing concert of the 1st Rostropovich International Festival in the Tchaikovsky Hall of the Moscow Conservatoire of Music. The soloists--Lyubov Petrova (soprano), Andrei Popov (tenor), Sergei Leiferkus (baritone) & Wen-Sinn Yang (cello)--are all outstanding, each bringing immediacy and personality to their individual performances. I was stirred by the rousing version of Shostakovich's Festive Overture, Op. 96, and charmed by the cello solo in the lovely rendition of Rachmaninov's classic "Vocalise". This is a concert album of uncommon beauty and finesse, and highly recommended.
