Vänskä Conducts Schubert

About this Concert:

Of all the penniless composers who wrote glorious music they never lived to hear, Franz Schubert is the best example; his heavenly C-major Symphony in the hands of this Orchestra and conductor would’ve been a magical gift to this now legendary composer.

BACH
Brandenburg Concerto No. 4

ELGAR
Cello Concerto

SCHUBERT
Symphony in C major, The Great

More Details:

  • Alban Gerhardt is famous in his native Germany for taking music to the people: he performs in schools, prisons, hospitals, moving commuter trains—and in SRO concert halls.
  • You’ll only see a handful of players onstage for Bach’s sunny Brandenburg Concerto No. 4; it’s “chamber music” meant for a small virtuoso orchestra.
  • Elgar composed his Cello Concerto in a cottage on the English Channel where he’d heard the French artillery rumble late at night during WWI.
  • Schubert’s Great Symphony was discovered years after his death in a stack of papers kept in a closet by his brother.
