S. Rachmaninoff- Symphony #2- Andre Previn & London Symphony Orch. (1973 recording). R.I.P. & Harmony Sir Andre Previn.
I've loved this composition, and many of the wonderful Russian composer, since studying them during my jr. high & high school years. The power, the fragile tender moments, the warm one minute & bracing chill of the unknown or known the next, the passion, romanticism, fear & defiance & struggle in the face of it. You have to close your eyes & allow yourself to get swept up by it.
