Schubert Symphony No 5 B flat major Bavarian RSO Maazel
The Seasons (Ballet, Op.67)
Scene III. Summer
Scene Three depicts the height of summer in a wheatfield.
The Spirit of Corn (Kschessinska’s role) dances in the heat of
the day. Naiads carrying blue veils symbolize the coolness of
streams. Satyrs invade the field and attempt to carry off the
spirit of Corn who is protected by Zephyr and the flowers.

The Symphony No. 6 in C major, D. 589, is a symphony by Franz Schubert composed between October 1817 and February 1818. Its first public performance was in Vienna in 1828. It is nicknamed the “Little C major” to distinguish it from his later Ninth Symphony, in the same key, which is known as the “Great C major“.
There are four movements:

(Recorded at Prinzregententheater München, 2001)
From Wikipedia: The Allegro con brio, which follows a broad introduction in a form which reminds us of the French Overture in two parts, the first slow and dramatic, the second more lyrical, is remarkable for its charm and the interplay of solo clarinet with syncopated strings, which developed pp from within the bounds of the style of chamber music to the larger sphere of the symphonic form. This is an extremely dramatic movement in sonata form. It owes much, as Michael Trapp points out in the liner notes of Günter Wand’s recording, to the influence of Rossini, whose music was quite popular at the time, particularly evident in the overture-like structure.
A delightful Allegretto in ternary form follows, full of grace and humor.
Then comes a high-spirited Minuet, which, with its accented up-beats, suggests a scherzo and a popular flavor due to this low and popular gesture, and is contrasted by a graceful Ländler-like trio.
The concluding Presto in tarantella rhythm is remarkable for its bold harmonic progressions and for its wealth of dynamic contrast. This movement is in sonata form with a looser conception.
