The Critic's Chair for 30 June 2013
Kenneth Young sits in for The Critic's Chair with a collection of sweeping orchestral works, from Rachmaninov's Symphony No 2 to Debussy's La Mer. Vasily Petrenko leads the Royal Liverpool Phil in the favourite Rachmaninov Symphony, and Daniel Gatti directs the French National Orchestra in Debussy. Cellist Sol Gabetta combines Shostakovich's Cello Concerto No. 1 with Rachmaninov's Cello Sonata. And Sony releases a 27 year project by Esa Pekka Salonen and the LA Phil to record the complete Lutoslawski Symphonies.
