Symphony No. 3

Johannes Brahms & Karol Szymanowski
Barbican

Brahms' Symphony No. 3 is considered to mark an entirely new stage of maturity, and is performed here along with his first orchestral piece, Variations on a Theme of Haydn.

These are presented alongside Szymanowski's Symphony No. 3, 'Song of the Night', a musical setting of a 13th-century poem written during his second Franco-Arabic period which features the acclaimed tenor Toby Spence.
