3. Symphonie, B-Dur, op. 27
|| London / Great Britain|
Szymanowski based his 3rd
Symphony on the eponymous poem by the Persian author and mystic Jalal
ad-Din ar-Rumi; perhaps one should read it before listening to the music. Even
if not, it is clear that Szymanowski wondrously succeeded in setting the poem’s
mysterious, sensuous, exotic atmosphere to music.
“Truth’s luminous wings satiate
this night! Sleep not, my consort!” The tenor joins with a chorus which often
sings only vocalises,
while the violin repeatedly takes the lead in the orchestra.
