Notes & Reviews:

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 Mevlana, our Master, Jalal ad-Din, which evokes the mysteries and beauty of a starlit Persian night.
