The Great Schubert Symphony
Franz Schubert revered Beethoven, and even attended the premiere of the giant’s Ninth Symphony. Schubert’s greatest tribute to the master was to write a grand symphony - his own Ninth. Fellow composer Robert Schumann offered these praises: “enthralls its listeners, drawing them along to the last joyous note.” The strings of the Jacksonville Symphony shine in the opening work, Elgar’s Introduction and Allegro. Join the Symphony family for a musical toast as we close the season with Schubert’s final symphony.
