Earlier releases on the Guild Historic label featuring Sir Malcolm Sargent have earned much critical praise, and we present a new compilation of Sargent conducting Rachmaninoff, of which he was particularly noted an interpreter. Sargent's orchestration of the Prelude in C sharp minor dates from the early 1930s: this superb recording with the London Symphony Orchestra will come as a revelation to many. Cyril Smith was a great British pianist who knew Rachmaninoff - but a stroke in 1956 curtailed his career, yet this record of the Second Concerto shows him at the height of his career. Rachmaninoff's Third Symphony under Sargent is another fine performance.
