Program

With his last two symphonies –including his “Unfinished” Symphony No. 8 in B minor, made up of two movements–, Franz Schubert abandoned classic symphonic styles, moving aesthetically closer to Beethoven with a clear romantic emphasis far removed from the Sturm und Drang movement. His 9th Symphony easily merits the name “Great”, given its magnitude and the complexity of a score whose four movements succinctly unite both present and future. It was posthumously premiered in 1839, conducted by Felix Mendelssohn eleven years after Schubert’s death.

Following his versions of Beethoven’s nine symphonies, Jordi Savall now takes on Schubert at the head of Le Concert des Nations, with two challenging German symphonic works. Under his baton and following his criteria in music philology, these well-known works will no doubt sound totally new to today’s audiences.
