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
BEETHOVEN: mvt 1, Violin Concerto, Op. 61 -Thomas Zehetmair, conductor and violin

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.
