Pieces of the Week – 9/5&12/2014

Here are the 4th and 5th movements from Penderecki’s 3rd symphony. You may recognize the 4th from Scorsese’s Shutter Island.

Doesn’t the 5th movement sound like the hero’s racing against time but then makes it at the last second?
Now to balance the scale here’s the finale from John Rutter’s Gloria.
