Franz Schubert / Emilie Mayer


Franz Schubert
Ouverture du Pavillon du Diable
Symphonie n° 4 “Tragique”

Emilie Mayer
Symphonie n° 1

Insula orchestra embarks on a journey to German Romantic lands. Franz Schubert takes pride of place with his “Tragic” Symphony, whose minor key accentuates its atmosphere of anxiety. However, Laurence Equilbey, after previously recording the work of Louise Farrenc, has chosen to balance Schubert’s work with a symphony by Emilie Mayer, a 19th-century female composer with an impressive catalog – a piece that helps us understand why she was frequently named “the female Beethoven”.

Record for Warner Classics Erato.
