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.
