"C’est modelé par l’émotion, mais tenu toujours dans ce commentaire subtil, attentif, élégant que lui tisse Vasily Petrenko et ses musiciens norvégiens.
Décidément, c’est à Oslo-Filharmonien que le jeune chef russe a trouvé son équilibre, cet orchestre est d’une beauté si particulière..." LAWO Classics

" it is shaped by emotion, but always kept in this subtle, attentive, elegant commentary that he weaves vasily petrenko and his norwegian musicians.

"Colourful and with a sense of Scriabin's vibrant fantasy." Oslo-Filharmonien Kirill Gerstein LAWO Classics

"Scriabin's orchestration is always rich and inventive, and Petrenko ensures that we hear every hand-stopped horn entry and quietly ominous timpani pronouncement. The first two movements are replete with clarinet solos, and the Oslo-Filharmonien principal player produces a wonderful range of colours, dark and husky in the low register, whilst warm and lambent higher up."

After some spirited debate and many hours of listening, the Presto editorial team have finally decided on our Top 10 Recordings of 2017 - the albums which really made us listen afresh to core repertoire, or made compelling cases for music which was new to us!

"The final Sacrificial Dance is one of the finest on disc—a fresh, vital performance that rivets your attention right to the end.
The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic musicians play marvelously throughout, having caught the conductor’s spirit of discovery. No matter how many Rite of Spring recordings you possess, you should not miss this one." Onyx Classics

Rachmaninov’s mini-cantata Spring tells of a husband intent on murdering his unfaithful wife, who then abandons his plans upon the arrival of spring. The melodically and harmonically rich music (written soon after the composer’s Second Piano Concerto) is in stark contrast to Debussy’s Printemp...

Indispensable! LAWO Classics

While Scriabin’s Second Symphony is arguably the most conventional of his five from a melodic and harmonic standpoint, it’s not a work that plays itself. In the central Andante, for instance, a conductor has to determine tempos that bring out the music’s expansive lyrical nature while preventi...
