This is a rarity on two counts – it’s a really good French symphony from the 1800s, and it’s written by a woman! The brilliant, Symphony No.3 by Louise Farrenc.
I don’t really like using old pictures of composers, but when we’re playing music by women, who are entirely new to us and aren’t just another dead white guy (with or without a wig) it seems appropriate!
