Press review

Splendid in every way (...). If you care at all about contemporary music then you will add this disc to your collection without delay.
David Hurwitz, ClassicsToday.com, December 2006, Artistic Quality 10 / Sound Quality 10

Many wonder if in 2006 it is still possible to write symphonic music that contains a message, is modern and uncompromised. After the most sublime CD coupling the Second Symphony with the Violin Concerto (...), the same miracle has taken place again.

Christophe Huss, ClassicsTodayFrance.com, Septembre 2006, Artistique 10 / Technique 10

Complete description

Pēteris Vasks' Third Symphony is a one-movement piece of spiritually deep and emotionally compelling music, which promises to build on the success of the Second Symphony (2004 Cannes Classical Disc of the Year Award, in addition to the Orchestral 20th Century Award; ODE 1005-2). Also included on this disc is the Latvian composer's Cello Concerto (1993), a highly personal and moving work that reflects suffering under the Soviet regime and the strength that helped the people of his country to survive. It features soloist Marko Ylönen, who specializes in contemporary repertoire. The Tampere Philharmonic Orchestra, one of Scandinavia's foremost symphony orchestras, is led by John Storgårds, who became musical director in August 2006.
