Bloch Symphony in E-flat major, Macbeth, Three Jewish Poems

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Dalia Atlas (conductor)

This program includes some of the least known masterpieces from Ernest Bloch's nearly 30 works for orchestra. Macbeth: Two Symphonic Interludes is an intoxicating and passionate distillation of Shakespeare's powerful drama. In Memoriam is a brief elegy dedicated to the pianist Ada Clement, while the Three Jewish Poems were written when Bloch was mourning the death of his father. Originally conceived as a third concerto grosso, Bloch's last Symphony, in E-flat major, is at times emotionally turbulent and deeply spiritual work containing passages of harmonic acerbity.
