Brahms Symphony No. 3

With these brilliant composers, every musical idea is a treasure box of inspiration. In Brahms’ Third Symphony, the care and attention lavished on each step and leap magnifies small gestures into momentous statements. Sofia Gubaidulina’s spiritual and resonant Offertorium has become a contemporary classic and now we get to hear why it has made such an impact.  When it comes to finding new life within old music, Bach lights the way as always, as heard in his glorious harmonization of a traditional hymn.
