Quote from: kingfaicl on February 06, 2024, 08:17:15 PMThanks, Cato, for the excellent advice! I listened to the radio only when driving, and couldn't recall which day it was, but managed to find the piece after looking through the CBC Music programme for the past week. It's Ernest Chausson's Symphony in B flat, Op.20, 3rd movement. That motif was stuck in my head and I just got to listen to the whole piece again. And because of this find, I'm gonna listen to more Chausson. Thanks to CBC too!

I first heard it many moons ago on an RCA vinyl record with Charles Munch conducting the Boston Symphony Orchestra.It was paired with Cesar Franck's Le Chasseur Maudit (The Wild Huntsman), which I will also recommend to you, if you do not know the piece!Best Wishes!
Quote from: kingfaicl on February 09, 2024, 01:07:06 PMThanks for the recommendation! I was first introduced to Franck's symphony and Le Chasseur Maudit by Muti's recording with the Philadelphia Orchestra, and fell in love with both immediately. There are moments in Chausson's symphony that remind one of Franck's, not least the forte ending of the 2nd movement, which ends with the exact same chord (D major), voiced and orchestrated very similarly, as the end of Franck's 1st movement. Indeed Chausson's symphony is the only one I can think of that ends its slow movement loudly. And as if to balance that, the finale ends quietly, like a valediction.
