SCO: Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony

MOZART                                          Overture, Die Zauberflöte
SCHUBERT                                     Symphony No.8 ‘Unfinished’
JAMES MACMILLAN                   Eleven
MOZART                                           Piano Concerto No.22 in E-flat, K482
Maxim Emelyanychev              conductor/ piano

Franz Schubert might never have completed his Symphony No.8, but he packed all the drama and emotion of a longer work into its two compelling movements —as well as his famously unforgettable melodies, of course.

Schubert’s ‘Unfinished’ forms the centrepiece of this wide-ranging concert, with SCO Principal Conductor Maxim Emelyanychev as both conductor and soloist in Mozart’s spectacular, opera-inspired Piano Concerto No.22. The dashing good humour of Mozart’s muchloved Overture to The Magic Flute, and the first UK performances of Sir James MacMillan’s new, football-themed Eleven complete a concert of high spirits and pithy power.
