Olivier Messiaen—L’Ascension (4 Meditations): The most famous of Messiaen’s early orchestral scores, L’Ascension rises and falls through four distinct movements before ultimately settling into a solemn, slow finish.
Anton Bruckner—Symphony No. 4 in E-flat major: When the composer himself nicknamed this symphony “Romantic”, he was referring not to the 21st Century definition of romance, but to the Medieval literary genre that brims with legends and quests. Like a shimmering knight on horseback, his four-part symphony emphasizes movement, enticing the audience with visions of Austrian hunts, festivals, and forests.
