Symphony No.3 is one of the most
significant and deep works by S. Rachmaninov. It was written in 1935-1936,
during the composer’s long sojourn abroad. The symphony was performed for the
first time in Philadelphia under the baton of L. Stokowski.
The images of the beloved Motherland, reminiscences and
thoughts about it make up the content of the symphony, deeply imbued with
Russian national color.
"Isle of the Dead" – symphonic poem was
completed by S. Rachmaninov in 1909. This is one of the most important program
works by the composer. The poem was created under the influence of the canvas by
the German painter A. Bocklin.
Scherzo for Orchestra in F major – is one of the
earliest orchestral works by the composer. It was completed on February 12,
1887, when Rachmaninov was less than fourteen. The scherzo’s themes, which are
close to folk melodies, are elegantly developed.
