Summary

There are thousands of great Symphonies out there, but only very few are regularly played in concert and on the radio. This book looks at just 104 overlooked masterpieces, including neglected works by famous composers (like the Bruckner Sixth and the Mahler Seventh) and gems by forgotten composers (like most of the Symphonies by Michael Haydn and Vagn Holmboe). To help bring focus, each Symphony in the list of 104 is described in 104 words or less, plus suggestions for accompanying Overture and Concerto.
