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 ...
