Symphony No. 8 "Unfinished", Schubert
Program Notes

Muti Conducts Schubert Unfinished

8:00 PM
Schubert, Elgar
Saturday, March 29, 2014

Once heard, the hauntingly beautiful cello melody in Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony is never forgotten. Yet the work’s ultimate power lies in its gaze into darkest despair culminating in the serenely beautiful second movement. In his Cello Concerto, played here by CSO Principal John Sharp, Edward Elgar gave sincere and heartfelt voice to his grief, defiance and wistful nostalgia in the face of World War I.

Postconcert book and CD signing with Maestro Riccardo Muti on Friday March 28 in Grainger Ballroom.
