Schubert's Unfinished is Finished on Sunday's ProMusica broadcast

Franz Schubert's Unfinished Symphony is, by many, considered complete, even in it's unfinished form.  Over the years, there has been much discussion as to why it remained so, since Schubert wrote other symphonies after that. David Danzmayr and ProMusica Chamber Orchestra explore the possibilities of Schubert's Symphony No. 8 in a finished form Sunday at 1:00pm on the ProMusica broadcast. Also on the program, two works feature pianist/composer Conrad Tao from a 2008 recording he made with ProMusica.  Fanfare Promusica, which Tao wrote to open the 2008 season, and the 2nd Piano Concerto by Camille Saint-Saens, with Conrad Tao as soloist.  Rounding out the program are performances by the McLin /Andrew Duo featuring ProMusica's Concertmaster Katie McLin, and Bob Spring, ProMusica's Principal clarinet. Join me Sunday afternoon at 1:00pm for the ProMusica Chamber Orchestra broadcast!  You should also be sure to check each week for a new podcast called In the Key of Danzmayr, highlights of conversations with ProMusica's new Music Director.
