Grazyna Bacewicz: Symphony No 4      (Conductor & Orchestra unknown!!)



Symphony No 4 (1953) which opens mysteriously is another powerful,thrilling piece,full of propulsive,driving energy. Like it's predecessor it seems power packed to my ears. An edge of seat ride! Very modern,but also very tonal. The slow movement that follows is full of brooding,lyricism. This is the kind of modern symphony I like. No 3 is my favourite;but they are both gripping symphonies. I find it hard to believe that a major label like Chandos,Cpo or Bis (for example) have ignored these. Although,there are commercial recordings of No 3 I can't trace any recordings of No's 1 or 2! Sad! :( A cycle of Symphonies 1 -4 would be much appreciated! (Come on Chandos/Cpo! Grin) ! I got this recording of No 4 from Youtube as I was unable to find a commercial recording. According to the person who uploaded the recording and various comments left there,the orchestra and conductor are "unknown". The sound quality is good,however,and it sounds like a decent performance. Great stuff! I'm impressed! No 3 is my favourite,though.
