(Un)finished: Symphony no.7 in B-flat Major (D 759)
Lieder with orchestra
Concentus Musicus Wien / Stefan Gottfried
Bass baritone Florian Boesch, top class Lied-singer, blooms in a Schubert programme (finest orchestrations by Brahms and Webern) with the renowned Concentus Musicus, the Viennese orchestra now led by the talented Stefan Gottfried. Next to these sublimated pieces, the Concentus performs a finished version of the mysterious ‘Unfinished’ Symphony.
A Scherzo by Schubert himself was completed by a composer (Nicola Samale) and a musicologist (Benjamin-Gunnar Cohrs) so that the result is faithful to the musician special expression. And Rosamunde’s Overture concludes this reenactment: a moving experience and a touching journey through time.
Florian Boesch’s strong voice and exquisite diction are beautified by
Nikolaus Harnoncourt’s legendary ensemble. Stefan Gottfried, his worthy
heir, leads the musicians on the romantic paths that combinate love and grief.
