A Summer’s Tale
BBC Symphony Orchestra
Available for a gift of $150 or more.
“...A Summer's Tale, an hour-long, five-movement symphonic poem from 1907, the second of a four-part reflective cycle encompassing death and the meaning of life. More positive than the bleakness of Asrael, it explores the healing powers of nature through an enthralling score that fuses epic, Mahler-ian romanticism with adventurous forays into impressionism (Debussy's La Mer had premiered in Paris two years earlier). Belohlávek and the BBC Symphony Orchestra make a powerful and impassioned case for this intense work, one that deserves to be much wider known.” – Graham Rogers, BBC Music
