February, 2014: Symphony No. 3 / Rozhdestvensky / Moscow Radio & TV Symphony Orchestra
But, in addition to this impressive symphony cycle project, Rozhdestvensky recorded some Bruckner symphonies for the Moscow Radio. These include Symphonies 1, 3, 8 and 9. All of these recordings have appeared in various ways over the years but are now all deleted. The Symphony No. 9 can be found as the Download of the Month for November, 2009.
This month we feature the symphony No. 3 in a performance recorded in 1972 While this particular CD lists the performance date as January 5th, most other sources list the performance date as February 13th. This performance has appeared on a few CDs and LPs but the best processing was on the CD issued by ICONE as part of their "Russian All Star Orchestra" series.
