We are also treated to composer Ruth Gipps’ romantically pulsating Symphony No. 3 this concert. Ruth Gipps’ music follows in the footsteps of her countrymen Frank Bridge and William Walton. In addition to being a composer, she was also a conductor, pianist, oboist and brilliant educator. In 1999 (the same year she passed away) she was awarded an MBE for her contributions to English music. The Guardian newspaper has described her music as playfully personal and shamelessly romantic.
The Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra is led by the British conductor Rumon Gamba, who has also made recordings of all five of Gipps’ symphonies with Chandos Records.
