Symphony No. 9 (Great)
The finale of Schubert’s Great C-Major Symphony,
energetically galloping to its tightly sprung rhythms, is
among the most exhilarating in the symphonic repertoire.
Yet, amazingly, this landmark work lay unknown after
Schubert’s death until discovered and championed by Robert
Schumann. Schumann’s own Piano Concerto is therefore an
apt companion in this program, performed by the revered
Japanese pianist Mitsuko Uchida.
These concerts are generously sponsored by Mr. and Mrs. dietrich M. Gross.

RIChARd KAUFMAN conductor
with his trademark bowler hat and lopsided gait, Charlie
Chaplin’s Little Tramp waddled his way into America’s heart
during the silent film era. City Lights, widely recognized as
the greatest film Chaplin ever made, follows the Tramp on his
quest to rescue the Flower Girl from blindness and poverty.

thinking of the third pig.
