Program Notes

Franz Schubert:

Symphony no. 8 in B Minor, D. 759 (“Unfinished”)

Composed in the autumn of 1822, this symphony is the best-loved of Schubert’s orchestral music.  For the record, Schubert completed two movements of this symphony and sketched a third (scherzo), nine measures of which were fully scored.  Part of the appeal of the “Unfinished” Symphony lies in the mystery that surrounds its incomplete status, and many theories have been suggested as to why Schubert abandoned it in midstream.

Benjamin Britten:

Double Concerto in B Minor for Violin, Viola and Orchestra

The forty years that have elapsed since the death of Benjamin Britten have only served to enhance the reputation that accrued to him during his lifetime – one of the greatest composers in the history of English music. Gifted from an early age, it is not surprising that under the tutelage of Frank Bridge, several works date from his youth. One work, however—the Double Concerto for Violin, Viola, and Orchestra—remained unfinished and unknown until recent times.

W.A. Mozart:

Symphony No. 41 in C Major, K. 551, “Jupiter”

Mozart’s last three symphonies were composed over a period of six weeks during the summer of 1788—an almost unbelievable feat, even for a composer who was famed for working at a breakneck pace.  Together they represent the zenith of the 18th-century symphonic process.  Their grandeur suggests that they were composed for public performance in Vienna, as opposed to any private function, and it may be that Mozart intended to use them for a series of concerts for his own benefit.
