HD-Vinyl 96/24 (Melodiya/EMI) Sergei Rachmaninov – The Bells (Kondrashin)

Many thanks to Jean-Luc for this rarity
This recording of Rachmaninov’s The Bells is excellent. An admirer had suggested Rachmaninov set Edgar Allan Poe’s poem, The Bells, to music. Poe’s poem dealt with four important life experiences as expressed in the sounds of different bells (silver – youth, gold – marriage, brass – war, iron – mourning). Rachmaninov set them as a four-movement choral piece, wonderfully capturing the different sounds and moods.
