      Schubert: Symphony No 3 in D major, D 200 (21:29)

      Freiburg Baroque Orchestra / Pablo Heras-Casado

      In his first recording for Harmonia Mundi, Pablo Heras-Casado gives us two of Schubert’s symphonies performed with Freiburger Baroque Orchestra. The carefree Third of 1815 ends with a Rossinian tarantella, while the darker Fourth (1816) looks more towards Beethoven. The subtitle ‘Tragic’ came from the 19-year-old composer himself, but perhaps the real tragedy is that this symphony, like all his others, was never played in public in his lifetime.
