Within the cultural landscape of symphonic composition, Brahms was acutely conscious of his relationship to Beethoven, and the Third Symphony, with its serene conclusion, represents one of his greatest achievements in creating a unified architecture across a four-movement work.
In Sibelius's Violin Concerto, we discover the psychology of landscape, following the passionate solo part set against a stark subarctic orchestral backdrop.
Looking away from Europe, Peter Sculthorpe proclaimed the significance of Australia's location as a Pacific nation on the edge of Asia, and the surprisingly tuneful Sun Music III beautifully evokes the sensuous environment of tropical Bali.
