Schubert: Symphony No. 8

In this video

Franz Schubert’s Symphony No. 8 is a composition that Schubert started composing in 1822. Commonly known as the Unfinished Symphony (Die Unvollendete), because although living for another six years, only two movements where written. The symphony is sometimes called the first Romantic symphony.

It has been theorized that a finale was composed, but instead became the Entr’acte in B Minor from his Rosamunde. Another reason speculated for Schubert not completing the symphony is the predominance of the same metre. The first movement is in 3/4 , the second in 3/8 and the possible third again in ¾. Three consecutive movements in basically the same metre rarely occur in symphonies of the most Viennese composers. Although both theories are not proven.

Composer: Franz Schubert
Artists: Staatskapelle Dresden, Herbert Blomstedt (conductor)
