Karol Szymanowski (1882-1937) Symphony No.2 & No.4*; Stabat Mater **

Valery Gergiev
London Symphony
Orchestra & Chorus
Denis Matsuev (piano)*
Kostas Smoriginas **
Ekaterina Gubanova **
Sally Matthews **


[2nd] “a natural inheritor of Scriabinesque exoticism, Szymanowski brings out the best in Scriabin’s most imaginative interpreters, which is why Gergiev proves such a convincing interpreter … excellent playing from the LSO” [4th] “Matsuev has his feet…firmly planted on terra firma … the gorgeous return to lushness in the second movement suggests an almost Ravelian sensibility…Matsuev and Gergiev turn the finale into Szymanowski’s danse generale.” (Gramophone)

[Stabat Mater] “is beautiful and Gergiev has the full measure of its 23 gorgeous minutes.” (MusicWeb)
