I can think of better things that it could be played under but will refrain from doing so; why Petrenko, of all people, is doing this beggars belief. Sorry.

All I can say is that I sincerely hope the Symphony No.11 is a very large cut above the 10th-which I thought was truly dreadful Sad

Late report back - it was interesting that in the programme notes, the composer compares his 11th to his 8th and 9th symphonies, with no mention of the 10th. However, I don't think that those who disparage Glass #10 will be enthusiastic about #11.

It was the first time I had been in the Sage at Gateshead, and I have to say I was most impressed by the acoustics. The second half of the concert was given over to Rachmaninoff's 2nd symphony, and I found I was noticing details of the orchestration I had never noticed before, and it's a work I have heard many times. It's a work supposedly influenced by Tchaikovsky, but it seemed to me that Borodin is a much stronger influence - and I had never noticed that before.

Reservations notwithstanding - if anyone sees an opportunity to 'acquire' the symphony, it would complete the collection, if nothing else !
