It's possible that Schubert would be amazed - or at least surprised - that these days we're listening to his symphonies. He wrote his fourth when he was just 19, and while it's labeled "Tragic" it has a bounce and jauntiness that only a kid could create.

Sonora M. of Pennsauken, NJ won last week's encore contest by correctly id'ing Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring by Bach.
