36:09Dvořák: Symphony no.8 (Emmanuel Krivine / Orchestre National de France)
Conducted by Emmanuel Krivine, the Orchestre National de France performs the overture to Moussorgsky's La Khovantchina, Dvořák's Symphony no.8, and Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto with Nikolaï Lugansky. Recorded on 18 October 2018 at the Radio France Auditorium, Paris.
A programme with a strong Slavic theme perhaps, but unquestionably diverse in nature: what could be more different from Rachnmaninoff's gracious Piano Concerto no.2 than the roughness of Moussorgsky's overture to La Khovantchina? What could be further from the Russian melancholy than the dancing rhythms of Dvořák's Symphony no.8?
