Autumn Concert

The Unfinished Emporer

Strode Theatre

 Saturday 23rd November 2019 7:30PM

Strode Theatre, Street

Mendelssohn: Overture The Fair Melusine
Schubert: Symphony in B minor Unfinished
Beethoven: Piano Concerto no 5 Emperor

Two titanic repertoire masterpieces receive equal billing in The Mid-Somerset Orchestra’s autumn programme. Despite Schubert’s delightful Symphony in B minor holding the epithet Unfinished, relating to endless conjecture about there being no completed scherzo and finale to make up the four-movement standard, the existing opening and slow movements on their own are generally recognised as being among the most complete lyrical utterances ever created in music.

The second half of the concert will be a performance of Beethoven’s monumental 5th Piano Concerto, known as the Emperor, first performed by its dedicatee, Archduke Rudolf in 1811 in Vienna.
