• This third volume of Malipiero’s symphonies features the most widely played of all his Symphonies, the strikingly original Sixth (for strings) from 1947.

• The adventurous, at times dissonant Fifth, with its concertante part for two pianos, juxtaposes chamber and orchestral textures.

• From the 1960s come the Eleventh (of the bagpipes), which features drone-like ostinati, and the colourfully scored Eighth (Short Symphony).

• Volumes 1 and 2 are available on Naxos 8.570878 and 8.570879.

“Based on this first volume of Symphonies, I believe that listeners will be pleasantly surprised at what appears to be a great symphonic cycle that is just waiting to be (re)discovered…. the playing by the Moscow Symphony Orchestra and their conductor Antonio de Almeida is stimulating. To my mind, they are great advocates of Malipiero’s music. The programme notes by John C.G. Waterhouse are informative, well written and essential reading.” MusicWeb International on 8.570878
