Scriabin - Symphony No.3, Le Poeme de L'Extase - Sinopoli, NY Philharmonic







"The New York Philharmonic . . . play with exceptional fire, colour and precision for Sinopoli (the superb horns are particularly fine) and the DG recording is both sumptuously big and finely detailed . . . . Sinopoli's performance is an Skrjabin, Alexander Nikolajevitch. The great Russian composer and musicianuncommonly compelling one, too . . . . For me the greatest pleasure of this performance is the beautiful balancing of orchestral texture: not one passage sounds muddy or over-scored; the 'garden-music' in the slow movement, warmly bright and bird-song-bedecked, is especially lovely. . . . Sinopoli's Poeme de l'extase [is] a luxurious bonus, and of this I haven't heard a better performance on record." – Gramophone
