Symphony no.3 in A minor, op.44


London Philharmonic Orchestra


Osmo Vanska


Osmo Vänskä conducts the London Philharmonic Orchestra in thrilling live recordings of works by Bax and Rachmaninov, two composers renowned for their sweeping romanticism. As his tone poem unfolds, Bax’s music evokes legendary images of Tintagel whilst also reflecting a passionate love affair. Similarly, Rachmaninov’s third and most expressive symphony is a work of intense lyricism, unified by a melancholic and emotional melody.

Recorded live at Southbank Centre’s Royal Festival Hall, London, 8 December 2007. Previously unavailable.

Press acclaim:
Vänskä conducts Bax and Rachmaninov ‘Drawing a surging performance that was by turns panoramic and passionate, the Finnish conductor proved himself a potent advocate for this neglected British composer... [This was followed by] a glittering and luxuriant performance of Rachmaninov’s Symphony No 3.’ - The Sunday Telegraph, December 07

Vänskä conducts Bax:
The players revelled in its glamorous seascape.’ - The Guardian, December 07
