Gorecki: Symphony No. 3 - David Zinman - Dawn Upshaw - London Sinfonietta on 180g LP + Download
Nonesuch Records releases the first vinyl LP of the label's beloved 1992 recording of Henryk Górecki’s Symphony No. 3 (Symphony of Sorrowful Songs), in October 2015, 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."
