LSO's passionate Principal Conductor Valery Gergiev continues his exploration of the music of Brahms and Szymanowski with the two composers' third symphonies. At the time he wrote his Third Symphony the fifty year old Brahms declared himself, "Free but Happy." Szymanowski found his own escape in the heady poetry of the 13th-century Persian mystic Jalal ud-Din Rumi, which celebrates the exquisite beauty of the Eastern night. With its sensual mysticism, its echoes of Wagner, Richard Strauss, Scriabin and Szymanowski's compatriot, Chopin, this richly woven musical tapestry has gained something of a cult following in recent years. Recorded at Barbican Hall, London in 2012. Program: Brahms - Symphony No.3 in F, Op.90 Brahms - Variations on a Theme by Haydn, Op.56a Szymanowski - Symphony No.3, Op.27 (The Song of the Night) Soloist: Toby Spence (tenor).
