Master Works Concert Series: Schubert "The Great"
Friday January 10th, 2014 Schubert “The Great!” George Hanson, conductor Corigliano:Voyage , Schumann: Konzerstuck for 4 Horns & Orchestra , Schubert: Symphony No. 9 “The Great” Franz Schubert himself considered it the finest ad beautifully orchestrated work of all his compositions and music lovers agree! Schubert’s 9th, “The Great”, has stood shoulder to shoulder with Beethoven’s finest compositions for over 170 years. Opening with Corigliano’s musical homage to Baudelaire’s provocative poem about a poet’s life, Voyage is a sensual journey of lush instrumentation. The Konzerstuck was written in one of Schumann’s most prolific periods and features intricacies for the horns with bright witty accompaniment by the orchestra.
