Schubert: Symphony No.8"Unfinished Symphony"

Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, Markus Stenz, conductor

CONCERT ON YOUR COMPUTER WEEK OF JULY 20: In the absence of our live performances we are selecting particularly enjoyable pre-recorded performances from across the world made available to us through the Internet and featuring them through our website.  Watch this one at your convenience anytime this week... The piece is a little less than a half-hour in duration.

This is the second Radio Philharmonic Orchestra performance we have featured this summer.  RPO is a Dutch radio orchestra based in Hilversum, and performs for the radio network NPO Radio 4.  This particular concert was recorded on May 31st 2013 in Vredenburg, Utrecht (Netherlands).

Conductor Markus Stenz has held a number of high-profile positions with international orchestras and opera houses including Principal Conductor of the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra (2012-2019), Principal Guest of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra (2015-2019), Conductor-In-Residence of the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra (2016-2019).  He was General Music Director of the City of Cologne and Gürzenich-Kapellmeister for 11 years (from 2003-2014), Principal Guest Conductor of the Hallé Orchestra (2010-2014), Artistic Director and Chief Conductor of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra (1998-2004), Principal Conductor of London Sinfonietta (1994–1998) and Artistic Director of the Montepulciano Festival (1989–1995).

From the Youtube description of the work: "The reason why the symphony was 'incomplete' is the subject of many studies. There is a theory that says Schubert didn't see the need for 3rd and 4th part, because he had put everything he needed in those first two parts. This would mean that Schubert broke with the usual structure of the 3 or 4 part symphonic tradition, something that could be seen as a bridge between the classical times and the Romantic era. This theory is much disputed though. Later Schuberts own sketches of the scherzo (the trio had to be completed) were added and a piece from the opera 'Rosamunde' was worked in as a finale."
