Overture, 'Manfred'
Byron was eagerly read by the young romantics in Germany, as elsewhere, in the first half of last century, and Schumann was among the poet's most enthusiastic admirers. Manfred appealed to him strongly, and he set some music to it, meant tor the most part to accompany the recitation of the poem. Small parts of it were laid out for singing, and there are some purely orchestral pieces. Schumann's idea was to have it performed on the stage, and it has once or twice been given in that way, notably by Liszt at Weimar. The Overture is considered to be one of the finest of Schumann's orchestral works.
Saint-Saëns Symphony No. 2
The Symphony No. 2, in A minor, is really the composer's fourth Symphony. It was written in 1859, but not published until 1878, and first performed in London by the Royal Philharmonic Society in 1898 under the composer. On this occasion the Scherzo was such a success that it was repeated. The form and style of Saint-Saen's A minor Symphony is essentially classical in conception. It is scored for a small orchestra without trombones and with only two horns.
