Gorecki: Symphony #3 / Upshaw, Zinman
Nonesuch Records releases the first vinyl LP of the beloved 1992 Nonesuch recording of Henryk Górecki’s Symphony No. 3, Symphony of Sorrowful Songs, on January 22, 2016, in conjunction with the release of the first recording of the composer's final work, Symphony No. 4, and a seven-disc box set containing all Nonesuch recordings of Górecki works. Featuring the London Sinfonetta and soprano Dawn Upshaw, this recording of the Polish composer's 1976 work proved spellbinding to a diverse international audience. The LP, pressed on 180-gram vinyl, includes a download of the complete album. TIME calls it "a transcendental meditation on mortality and redemption."
