Reviews

Rachmaninov’s Isle of the Dead is a masterpiece, but one that can be elusive. In the wrong hands it can feel as if it is going on all night, and going nowhere at that. Pintscher gave it shape, direction and climax: his sense of sway, mirrored in his physical movement, was magical, and the SSO, playing with dark atmosphere, lapping and slowly-swirling figures that sucked you into an inexorable whirlpool, never lost concentration for a second.
