Franz Schubert – Symphony No. 2 in B flat major D. 125

While the first symphonies composed by Schubert between the ages of 16 and 18 were influenced by Viennese classicism, it is also true that the piece demonstrates originality.

Franz Joseph Haydn – Symphony in D major Hob:I:96, The miracle

Haydn’s 12 ‘London’ symphonies, composed between 1791 and 1795 on the occasion of the two successful tours in the English capital, represent the pinnacle of his orchestral production. Fourth of the group, the Symphony n. 96 in D major The Miracle was composed in 1791 and performed on March 11 of the same year in London. The title The Miracle is due to an accident that occurred on the evening of the execution. Haydn’s practice was to conduct his symphonies while seated at the harpsichord. At the end of the concert a part of the audience got up from their seats and approached the stage to compliment the Maestro, when a chandelier fell from the ceiling crashing right into the seats, which were fortunately empty.

Franz Liszt – Les Préludes S 97

Les préludes is the third and best known of the 13 symphonic poems composed by Franz Liszt.
