Fifty down, fifty more symphonies to go!

Whew! After slowing down a bit this past weekend, I have picked it up again and have listened to 50 symphonies!
Some highlights:

  • Schubert's Unfinished and Great C Major: After listening to these two symphonies, I appreciate Schubert even more. He's emotional.
  • Mahler's Symphony No. 2 and No. 6: Some day I hope to hear these pieces performed live.
  • Shostakovich's Symphony no. 3 and no. 5 and no. 9: I plan to listen to more----I am not sure if I will listen to all 15 symphonies!
  •  Berlioz's Symphonie Fantastique
  • Liszt's Dante Symphony (I know it's more of a tone poem, but I like it!)
  • Borodin's Second Symphony
Next week I will write more on the Romantic period.
