Notes & Reviews:

It is a little known fact that Bizet's 'Symphony No. 1', now regarded as a minor masterpiece, was closely modeled on his teacher Gounod's 'Symphony No.1', only rediscovered in the 1950's and still unaccountably neglected. Anyone familiar with Bizet's 'Symphony', will recognize the melodic and rhythmic similarities of the delightfully vivacious outer movements. Gounod's 'Symphony No.2', a more ambitious and elaborate work, is more in the style of Beethoven or Mendelssohn.
