“Symphony No. 3 (1995) was commissioned by the Würth Foundation for the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra; première February 5, 1995, by the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, Künzelsau, Germany.
Composed for the 19 string players of the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, Philip Glass's Symphony No. 3 was designed to treat every musician as a soloist. "The work fell naturally into a four-movement form," Mr. Glass has written, "and even given the nature of the ensemble and solo writing, [it] seems to have the structure of a true symphony.”

I'm beginning here to resurrect some of the works that "disappeared" from Avax or were "abandoned" from the original uploaders. There's not a real thought behind it, I'm just cleaning up my HDs and following the wind. What I downloaded long ago is flowing back. All credits go to the first uploader. Enjoy...
