Why See Colorado Symphony Orchestra - Schubert?
An essential experience!
Guest conductor Carlos Kalmar makes his first appearance with Colorado Symphony in 14 years. On this rare evening, Kalmar will take center stage in leading the orchestra in a performance with multiple pieces of work.
Gould - Spirituals for Orchestra
Gliere - Concerto for Horn in B-flat major, Op. 91
Schubert - Symphony in B minor, D. 759, "Unfinished"
Wagner - Prelude to Die Meistersinger
Contrary to the name, Colorado Symphony will play Schubert's 'Unfinished' symphony, due to it still creating an essential symphonic experience. Sharing the night with Kalmar is Michael Thornton, who will perform Gliere's stunning but demanding horn concerto. Rounding out the program is the magnificent concert piece, Prelude to Die Meistersinger.
Did You Know?
Schuberts Symphony No. 8 in B minor, D. 759, commonly known as the 'Unfinished' symphony is a piece that Schubert started in 1822 but left with only two movements - though he lived for another six years, he never finished the piece.
To this day people are still speculating why Schubert didn't finish this piece of work, some say it was due to an infection and others believe he became distracted by another piece of work. It could also be a combination of both!
Opening night: 19 October 2018
