Description: The symphony dates from 1903 and the composer issued a long programmatic note for its second performance which describes its four movements as representing the profound disillusion and disappointments of an artist whose soul, assailed by doubts, languishes, exhausted, before re-entering the struggle and being triumphantly reborn. Although the program is Straussian, the music is very much indebted to the Tchaikovsky Fifth in its tonal progress, rhythmical procedures and, especially, the trumpet signal in the first movement representing Fate. The White Dove (1900) is what's left of incidental music for a forgotten play and has a pronounced Wagnerian aspect. Warsaw Philharmonic Orchestra; Antoni Wit.
