CARL LOEWE (1796-1869): Symphonies in E Minor and in D Minor, Overture Themisto.
Catalogue Number: 01Y003
Description: Unfortunately, nothing is really known about the exact circumstances of the composition and premiere of these two symphonies. With regard to the E minor symphony, Loewe himself at least left the note that the composition was completed on December 15, 1834. With regard to the D minor symphony, it is assumed that it was composed in 1835. Especially the D minor symphony, which was composed later, comes up with surprises in its formal layout. The instrumentation is very similar to his first symphony in E minor, but the frequent use of four horns is striking. Jena Philharmonie; Simon Gaudenz.
