A great Mozart scholar once wrote that Mozart had compressed “all the struggle and victory of mankind” into this overture. Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony, a continued mystery as to why he failed to complete it, offers a poetic close to evening’s program. Music program:



Mozart


Overture from The Magic Flute, K. 620



Schubert


Symphony No. 8, B minor, D. 759 (Unfinished Symphony)



Beethoven


Piano Concerto No. 5, E-flat major, Op. 73
