Symphony No 3, Symphony of Sorrowful Songs owes its mass appeal to the powerfully evocative second movement – the setting of an eighteen year old girl’s prayer scratched on the wall of a Gestapo prison in 1944. It is an extraordinary piece of music which completely envelops you in the atmosphere it creates and depth of feelings it engenders. An experience not to be missed.
The 1992 recording by the London Sinfonietta captured the public imagination, sold millions of copies worldwide and was top of the Classic FM charts for months.

‘Unbelievable. This is one of the most emotional and moving pieces of music that has ever been written’.

Bristol Ensemble – Bristol’s only professional orchestra and orchestra for the West of England.
