Symphony 9 "Great" - Schubert (only symph in existance showing composer's complete maturity - LXT 2719)

£5.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

(featuring the legendary Concertgebouw Orchestra of Amsterdam, conducted by the equally-legendary Josef Krips)

Franz Schubert's (1797-1828) "Great C major" Ninth Symphony, used to be confused with several other symphonic works, that were composed by the great Austrian. For a start, when it was not labelled his "Ninth" Symphony, many lovers of classical music would confuse the work, with his Symphony No.6 : Also in C major.

Then, there is the fact that the piece itself, was originally titled No.7! This was very misleading indeed, because it gave the false impression that the "Great C major" came chronologically-before the "Unfinished" Symphony of 1822, when in fact, it was written a full six years later, in the last Spring of Schubert's life ... To confuse matters even further, there exists a genuine Symphony No.7 in E by the Austrian, dating from 1821, which was left non-orchestrated (but is nevertheless occasionally performed in an orchestral form, adapted by one Weingartner).

This "Great C major" Ninth, is the only symphony of Schubert's complete maturity - within his sadly-too-short lifespan -, that lovers of classical music possess ; the B minor is unfinished, while the much-fabled "Gastein" Symphony of 1825, is tragically lost. The Ninth is therefore a unique example of what Franz Schubert could do, in the grand orchestral manner ...

Side One : Symphony No.9 in C major "Great" (beginning) :-
1) I Andante - Allegro ma non troppo 2) II Andante con moto.
Side Two : Symphony No.9 ... (conclusion) :-
1) III Scherzo (Allegro vivace) & Trio 2) IV Finale (Allegro vivace).
