About

The première recording of Latvian Peteris Vasks' Third Symphony, a one-movement piece of spiritually deep and emotionally compelling music which promises to build on the success of the Second Symphony. This release, also on Ondine - coupled with the Violin Concerto 'Distant Light' (ODE10052) and featuring the same performers - won the 2004 Cannes Classical Disc of the Year Award, in addition to the Orchestral 20th Century Award. The Third Symphony is coupled with the Cello Concerto (1993), a highly personal and moving work that reflects suffering under the Soviet regime and the strength that helped the people of his country to survive. It features soloist Marko Ylönen, who specialises in contemporary repertoire. The Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra, one of Scandinavia's foremost symphony orchestras, is led by John Storgårds, who became Music Director in August 2006.
