George Enescu – Symphony No. 3, Romanian Rhapsody No. 1


Performer: BBC Philharmonic Orchestra

Conductor: Gennady Rozhdestvensky

Year: 1998

Label: Chandos

“…Written during the unsettled years of the First World War, this nearly-hour-long, three-movement work is anchored in a malign, hallucinatory scherzo, which is bordered by a sometimes brooding, sometimes eruptive first movement and a textless choral finale…The sound is outstanding…soaking us in the lavish colors, but also capturing the all-important subterranean tremors with the requisite subtlety. Urgently recommended.” -Rabinowitz, Fanfare
