FAURÉ: Suite from Pelléas and Mélisande, Opus 80 RAVEL: Ma Mère l'Oye (Mother Goose) Ballet Music SCHUBERT: Symphony No. 4 in C Minor, D. 417 Tragic BRITTEN: Variations on a Theme of Frank Bridge -Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, Douglas Boyd, conductor (SPCO Live Recording 090926)
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.
