WAGNER, R.: Symphony in C Major / Symphony in E Major (fragments) (Leipzig MDR Symphony, Märkl)

Although he is best known for his innovative operas and iconic music dramas, Richard Wagner maintained a keen interest in symphonic composition throughout his career. Written in his late teens and early twenties, these two symphonies stand as a tribute to Wagner’s passion for his great idol Beethoven. The Symphony in C major absorbs the energetic fire and rhythmic dynamism of Beethoven’s Seventh and Eighth Symphonies, while the Symphony in E major was alas left unfinished at its beautifully warm and lyrical Adagio cantabile.
