It seems that the world premiere performance of Gordon Crosse's Symphony No. 3 is to be broadcast tomorrow (27th October), tucked away in Radio 3's 'Afternoon Concert', some time before 5pm.

Also included are works by Rachel Portman, Edwin Roxburgh and Sally Beamish (Diodati - UK premiere).

The section of the programme containing all of these works begins at about 3.25pm UK time.

Link to BBC programme page: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b09b0yd7.

It seems to have been recorded at a concert in Maida Vale on 6th October: https://www.bbc.co.uk/events/emncd4

Thank you Kinder for this message. I will try to downliad them, if I can.
The subtitle of the symphony sounds intriguing.

A work completed six years ago. I'm reminded of the way that the premiere of Rubbra's 10th symphony was squirrelled away by the BBC in a lunchtime concert - to some outrage, I'm glad to say.

........but what a strange work the Crosse Symphony No.3.

I am not sure that the Amplified Guitar really adds anything to it. Crosse gave up composing music between 1990 and around 2007 to concentrate on music technology and computer programming. This symphony was written between 2010 and 2011. Does it work? I am not sure.

....but at least it can be heard and a judgment formed.
