Last week in our cycle of the Schubert symphonies, we listened to the sixth symphony - written on the cusp of the Classical and Romantic periods by the 21-year-old composer.
This week we come to one of the most famous symphonies of them all, Schubert's Symphony No. 8 in B minor, the Unfinished Symphony.
Why was it unfinished --- and what happened to Symphony No. 7?
These are both good questions, and they have been debated by musicologists for nearly 200 years. We'll add our two cents' worth this Thursday night.
