VIENNA SYMPHONICS

Sergei Rachmaninoff wrote the Symphonic Dances, his last composition, in American exile 80 years ago. It incorporates several references to earlier works by Rachmaninoff, which were more or less successful. The coda of the first dance, for instance, quotes the triplet motif from the first movement of Symphony No. 1 in D minor, composed almost 50 years earlier, which had mercilessly failed with the audience.
