Rawsthorne Symphonies Nos. 1, 2 & 3


"What a valuable and rewarding release! These vintage recordings have come up as fresh as new paint ...the Third Symphony in particular sounds astonishingly fresh nearly 30 years on. Rawsthorne's three symphonies form a powerful triptych. The First (1950) impresses with its urgency and polish. The Second (1959) inhabits an altogether more relaxed and delicate landscape...and the Third Symphony (1964) contains some of Rawsthorne's most intense, anguished inspiration." Andrew Achenbach, Gramophone *** PENGUIN GUIDE 2010
