Philip Spratley Symphony 3 'Sinfonia Pascale'
Posted by Jeffrey Davis on June 1, 2018, 8:23 am
Very many thanks to Rob for alerting to this fine symphony (2009). What a work! Powerful, approachable tonal and with a triumphant Brucknerian ending which had me on the edge of my seat. The other composer I was reminded of is the Finn Einar Englund.
All credit to Toccata Classics too and the Siberian SO and their conductor Dmitry Vasiliev. One of the happiest new discoveries for me this year along with Maximilian Steinberg's great 4th Symphony.
Thank you for taking part in the MusicWeb International Forum.
