Berg Violin Concerto
Schubert Symphony No. 9, The Great
So profound was the impact of Schubert’s Great Ninth Symphony that when Robert Schumann first encountered the manuscript he described it as ‘transporting us into a world where I cannot recall having ever been before’. The great Viennese tradition can also be savoured in Berg’s Violin Concerto, a heartbreaking lament composed to ‘the memory of an angel’.
