Thank you, britishcomposer, for the Emilie Mayer Symphony no. 4 Smiley Smiley!
Not that it is so important, but WIkipedia mentions the B minor symphony as being No. 6. Are there actually only twxo (or three) numbered symphonies out of the mentioned eight?

Ah, you're probably right, Jim! Senfter's Wikipedia article lists it as being in B major, but klassika.info and Shamus' post say B-flat major. Aw, and I was really hoping for a B major symphony Grin! The only other B major symphonies I am aware of are Shostakovich 2, Haydn 46, Korngold Sinfonietta (a symphony in all but name), and a symphony by Georg Mann!
The beginning of J. Senfter's 4th is tonally quite ambiguous, rather in a Franz Schmidt vein, but then it centres around B-flat indeed - and the conclusion is unambiguously in B-flat Major.
Here are some B Major symphonies: Philip Greeley Clapp's Sixth "Golden Gate" and Tenth, Robert Farnon's Second "Ottawa", Edward Burlingame Hill's First, Feliks Łabuński's Symphony in three parts, George Lloyd's Fourth "Arctic", Cipriani Potter's Third, Charles Tournemire's Second "Ouessant" (starting in B-flat minor, but ending in B major), Andria Balanchivadze's First, Alberto Williams's Sixth "La muerte del cometa".

I was aware of this but I decided to follow the information given by the broadcaster, Deutschlandradio Kultur. I will upload an interval talk about the composer and her work shortly. It's in German but perhaps some of you are interested and able to follow.

EDIT: It's available for download now. I have added the link to my original post of the symphony.

You are very welcome! Smiley Actually, Radio Nacional Argentina broadcasted Alberto Williams's First Symphony last night (there are quite a few gaps and hiccups, not sure whether anyone is interested in having it here). It is, by all accounts, in B minor. Well, either they have used a very low pitch or the tape has a serious speed problem, because it definitely sounds like a low-pitched B flat minor to me...  Roll Eyes

Thank you! They do refer to the "Fourth Symphony in B minor". So does the program of the concert. This uncertainty is a bit intriguing, since Emilie Mayer's symphonies were actually performed in those years and apparently were numbered. It is true that symphonic cycles by other composers (e.g. Dvořák) experienced quite some change of numbering over the years.

Thank you very much, Holger, for the EH Meyer string quartets Smiley! I had first discovered this composer through the many pieces of his that are on the YouTube channel "WatchBlueSkies"-what a fine composer indeed Smiley!

And thank you kyjo for the extra info on Haas.
This is, at least outside Germany, an overlooked composer.

In Germany, Joseph Haas is mostly ignored as well, in fact. Thanks for your uploads, Roelof - I am just tracking them all down, which takes its time since my internet connection is a little slow this morning. Could you also give us a scan of the sleeve for the performers etc.?

Thank you Elroel for the Rosenfeld pieces! I heard an interesting violin sonata many years ago and his opera "Kniefall in Warschau".
However, the link to the Three Nocturnes is currently invalid.

Just fixed the link for Rosenfeld's Drei Mokturnen.

It looks ok now
