wcfsymphony Encore Imagines Schubert's Complete "Unfinished"

Sep 15, 2015

Join the wcfsymphony as they explore the mystery of Schubert's "Unfinished Symphony" in an encore broadcast of their "Imagine" concert. Left incomplete after only two movements, Schubert's work is considered one of the first Romantic symphonies because of its expressive melodies. The wcfsymphony combines the symphony with Schubert’s sketch for a third movement, a Scherzo, finished by Brian Newbold. The concert closes with Schubert’s Entr’acte No. 1 from Rosamunde, which many consider was originally intended as the final movement of the enigmatic symphony. Tune in to Iowa Public Radio Classical on Monday, September 21 at 7:00 p.m. for this encore broadcast.
