High in the Carpathian mountains, as Romania stood on the brink of the First World War, George Enescu conceived his Third Symphony. Rarely played in Western Europe, and scored for a vast orchestra, it’s a true late-Romantic epic on a scale that Mahler would have recognised: a massive spiritual drama of tragedy, struggle and final, glorious transcendence. Vladimir Jurowski loves it, and his choice of pieces to precede it is inspired: the Bach suite whose blazing majesty inspired Enescu, and the Bach-inspired Third Piano Concerto by Elena Kats-Chernin, the Australian composer whose music is proof that living composers really can write tunes.
