SZYMANOWSKI: Symphonies Nos. 2 and 3



Shipping time: In stock | Expected delivery 1-2 days | Free UK Delivery
Composed in 1910, at a time when Szymanowski was influenced by Richard Strauss, Reger and Scriabin, the unusually structured Symphony No. 2 is a work of great power and invention, with many passionate and varied contrasts in its use of solo instruments, in particular the violin. Szymanowski's Symphony No. 3 'Song of the Night', in which orchestra, tenor and choir are subtly blended in a continuous web of intoxicating sound, is a ravishing setting of a Polish translation of a poem by the great medieval Persian mystic known as Mevl?ón?ó, our Master, Jal?úl ad-D+n, which evokes the mysteries and beauty of a starlit Persian night.
