Description: Now Mayer’s symphony cycle is complete on disc with the Militaire using the extra brass and percussion of Haydn’s Military symphony but, like Beethoven in his Ninth, reserving them for the finale. Its premiere in 1850 marked Mayer’s debut as an orchestral composer. Her sixth and final symphony was first heard three years later and Beethoven was the model here, especially in the funeral march of the first movement. Bremerhaven Philharmonic Orchestra; Marc Nieman.
