BBC Symphony Orchestra
Andrew Manze conductor
Join the BBC Symphony Orchestra for a recording celebrating the 215th anniversary of Schubert's birth, with live broadcast as part of BBC Radio 3's The Spirit of Schubert season.
Andrew Manze conducts Brian Newbould's completion of Schubert's ‘Unfinished' Eighth Symphony, utilising some of Schubert's incidental music for Helmina von Chézy's play Rosamunde.
This is framed by two delightful overtures: The Overture in D major in the Italian style, D. 590, written in November 1817, which reflects the influence of Rossini, and the overture to Schubert's opera Alfonso and Estrella, which originally served as an Overture to Rosamunde.
Because tickets to these concerts are free, not everyone uses their tickets and we therefore have to give out more tickets than there are seats. Entry is therefore not guaranteed, so please arrive early to avoid disappointment.
