An exciting new recording of Rachmaninov’s Symphonic Dances and The Bells! These two Rachmaninov masterpieces are performed by one of the world’s most renowned orchestras under their celebrated principal conductor Sir Simon Rattle. This is a rare chance to hear Sir Simon’s interpretations of these great works.

Towards the end of his life, the composer himself said of The Bells "I worked on this composition with feverish ardour; and it remains of all my works the one I love the most." Of the Symphonic Dances, written shortly before his death, he said "I don’t know how it happened, it must have been my last spark."
