Work introduction

The 27-year-old composer wrote his third symphony for Willem Mengelberg, the Concertgebouw Orkest’s conductor, on the occasion of his 40th jubilee. It is among his most significant works; immediately after its premiere performance in 1935 it was performed with great success in many European countries. The Berliner Tageblatt wrote of the first performance: “The premiere of Henk Badings’ Symphony No. 3 was one of the festival’s greatest surprises: before us stands a musician in the finest sense of the word … and a master of form, technique and orchestration.”
