Symphonies from an Irish Composer

Marco Polo 8.223766

John Kinsella
(b. 1932)

Symphony #3 "Joie de Vivre"
Symphony #4 "The Four Provinces"

National Symphony Orchestra of Ireland/Proinnsias Ó Duinn
Marco Polo 8.223766 77:12

This is one of the most interesting CDs of the Irish composers series on Marco Polo. The music is frequently exciting with more than a little menace such as in Peter Mennin's "Moby Dick" and Fifth Symphony. Those who are wary of dissonance need not be worried about this music: it's a pity more of Kinsella's symphonies are not available.
