Harbison: Symphonies 3 & 4

Harbison: Symphonies 3 & 4 (Digital)

The Third Symphony, dating from 1990, is a compact, five-movement piece whose variety of character can be summed up by Harbison’s movement titles: Disconsolate, Nostalgic, Militant, Passionate, and Exuberant. The composer’s Fourth Symphony, written in 2004, bears the traces of his preoccupation with 1920s jazz from his years working on the opera "The Great Gatsby", but continues in a different, more “classical” direction.

These recordings were made from live performances led by James Levine in fall 2010 as part of the BSO’s two-season survey of the complete Harbison symphonies.
