Nathalie Stutzmann Conductor

Mazzoli Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres)
Schubert Symphony No. 9 (“Great”)

Schubert’s colossal Symphony No. 9, known as the “Great,” represents the pinnacle of the composer’s art, though it did not premiere until 10 years after his early death. Schubert felt that the Ninth was his only fully mature symphony, the only one intended for audiences, and the only one that could be compared to Beethoven, whom Schubert revered above all others. Listen for a striking resemblance to Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy” theme in the last movement. In sparkling contrast, Missy Mazzoli notes that her Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres) is “a piece that churns and roils, that inches close to the listener only to leap away at breakneck speed.”

Please note: All Digital Stage events begin with a performance premiere, streaming in real time. Following the performance premiere, the concert will be available for ticket holders to watch on demand for one week.
