2022/23 Concert Season

Unfinished Symphony

Explore one of the greatest mysteries in musical history — that of Franz Schubert’s first romantic symphony and one of his greatest works — that was never completed. Perhaps it was the specter of the great Beethoven, whose heroic Egmont Overture overlooks the opening of this concert or Schubert’s own failing health that drove the angst-ridden unfinished oeuvre.

Phenomenal Women
