At last cpo are releasing the second CD by the Dutch composer Jan van Gilse. The first release which featured his Symphonies Nos. 1 & 2 immediately revealed van Gilse’s personal style and emotional depth. Standing firmly on the foundation of tonal late romanticism, this is music of dazzling beauty infused with pathos, drama and passion.
Jan van Gilse: Symphony No. 3 in D minor, "Erhebung"
II. Leidenschaftlich und heftig bewegt
III. Sehr langsam und schwermutig
IV. Lebhaft und sehr kraftig, stellenweise im Ausdruck eines ubermutigen Walzers
V. Ausserst langsam und sehr ruhig, mit innigster Empfindung
