Rachmaninow at its finest!
With this brilliant recording of the 2nd Symphony the Dortmund Philharmonic, under its conductor Gabiel Feltz, has started off its recording cycle of all Rachmaninow’s symphonies.
In Gabriel Feltz, winner of the “Prix Rachmanonow”, the orchestra has a recognized authority on Rachamaninow’s music. The orchestra has put in a magnificent performance and the recording team from Tritonus has done fantastic work. A wonderful start, captured on SACD. Mr. Feltz's extensive discography continues to show him as one of the outstanding conductors of his generation.

Das Treffen in Telgte
Catalog number: 21089
In his story “Das Treffen in Telgte” [“The meeting in Telgte”] Günter Grass has created a fable in which he describes the situation of literature from the point of view of a critical observer and commentator of the historical events. The story about an encounter between authors in 1647, which was initiated by the poet Simon Dach from Königsberg, takes place in a mill in Telgte, Westphalia, not far from Münster, where the Treaty ending the Thirty Year War was signed one year later.
After almost 30 years of war the plea for peace in the middle of the 17th century was the one which dominated all others. Whether in poetry or in music, it was omnipresent. (Bernhard Heß/ RIAS Kammerchor)
