Thursday, March 20, 2014
The finale of Schubert’s Great Symphony, energetically galloping to its tightly-sprung rhythm, is among the most exhilarating in the symphonic repertoire.

Schumann’s own Piano Concerto is therefore an apt companion in this program, performed by the revered Japanese pianist Mitsuko Uchida.
