About

Zdeněk Fibich’s three symphonies project very different qualities: No.1 (available on 8572985) prizes structural integration, and No.2 (8573157) cyclical unity. Symphony no.3, written only two years before his untimely death in 1900, but at the zenith of his powers as one of the Czech Lands’ leading composers, reveals Fibich’s sustained melodic and atmospheric powers as the music pursues the ‘darkness to light’ trajectory synonymous with the symphony during the 19th century. The remaining pieces, drawn from his best stage works, showcase operatic qualities that extend the dramatic lineage of Smetana. This is the final volume in this series.
