Catalogue Number: 10Q043
Reference: 777 863-2
Description: Completists will want this for the fragment of the Third Symphony: it's from 1890-92 (dated by the shaky handwriting!), we have the slow introduction and exposition of the first movement and the entire, short slow movement - a total of 8:21 in this recording. And the performances of the two other symphonies are really good, good enough that you could retire whichever one you have now! Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana; Oleg Caetani.
