The ambitious Symphony in F major is dAlberts single work in this form, showing him as a gifted composer in the tradition of Brahms. His two piano concertos can be found on Naxos 8.553728.

I hope you don't mind if I quote from my review of the CPO recording of this symphony. I have changed the timings, of course:

"Dating from 1884, D'Albert's symphony is an astonishingly assured work for a composer barely out of his teens. It is an enormous improvement on the unbearably prolix First Piano Concerto. Indeed, it is not a moment too long. Much of the music is heavily indebted to the symphonies of Brahms and it is hardly an exaggeration to say that it doesn't fall far short of its great models. The first movement is built on strong melodic material which, after a few hearings, will imprint itself on your memory. It is, of course, a sonata structure. The opening theme is stated at once and the second subject arrives at 2 mins 4 secs. Various other themes are thrown into the melting pot including a strongly rhythmic idea for the strings and, at 4 mins 52 secs, a woodwind idea which would have made Brahms blush. There is also a short idea (first heard at 4 mins 1 sec) which reappears in the scherzo and which is to crown the symphony. I was going to say that this was an obvious crib from Cesar Franck's Symphony until I noticed that that piece wasn't premiered until 1889. The development section is substantial and splendidly argued. It really is most impressive. The recapitulation, beginning at 9 mins 31 secs, is regular. There is an eloquent coda.

The slow movement, which Richard Strauss found "enormously enjoyable", is also impressive. It proceeds in an unassuming Brahmsian manner employing a string of attractive ideas, the most important of which is heard on the clarinet at 4 mins 35 secs. However, D'Albert has a surprise in store. The music suddenly diverts from its expected course, building to a wonderfully dramatic and eloquent sequential climax.
