Symphony No. 6, in C. Op. 31 played by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra
Conductor: Sir Thomas Beecham , Bt. on gramophone records
This symphony by the Swedish composer Kurt Atterberg was awarded first prize in New York in 1928 at an international Schubert centenary contest for an orchestral work, modern in spirit, upheld throughout by a melodic strength such as is found in the symphonies of Schubert. Of the three movements the first two are serious in content and the third is a good-humoured Schubertian satire.
These records were not made by the present Royal Philharmonic Orchestra but by that which existed from 1928 to 1932.
