Richard WAGNER (1813–1883)
Symphony in C major
Symphony in E major (fragment)


MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra / Jun Märkl

Although he is best known for his innovative operas and iconic music dramas, Richard Wagner maintained a keen interest in symphonic composition throughout
his career. Written in his late teens and early twenties, these two symphonies stand as a tribute to Wagner’s passion for his great idol Beethoven. The Symphony in C major absorbs the energetic fire and rhythmic dynamism of Beethoven’s Seventh and Eighth Symphonies, while the Symphony in E major was alas left unfinished at its beautifully warm and lyrical Adagio cantabile.


Richard Wagner’s symphonic and orchestral works are little known in comparison with his operatic masterpieces. This is the first of a two volume edition of his purely orchestral works, the second of which will appear on June. These recordings complement our acclaimed new Wagner Ring Cycle conducted by Jaap van Zweden, and also sit well alongside the Orchestral Excerpts set from Gerard Schwarz and the Seattle Symphony.

The MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra is Germany’s oldest radio orchestra and has a close association with Jun Märkl. Their recording of Mendelssohn’s Elijah (8572228-29) was considered “full-blooded” by BBC Music Magazine, and these forces were admired for “an ideal rich and burnished tone” (MusicWeb International) in symphonic works by Eugen d’Albert (8572805)
