Schubert’s Final Symphony

Kurt Schwertsik Schrumpf-Symphonie (Shrunken Symphony)  (05')
Korngold Violin Concerto  (24')
- INTERVAL (20') -
Schubert Symphony No.9 ‘Great’  (50')

Kevin John Edusei conductor
Simone Lamsma violin 

Those in the know call it the “Great C major”. Musicians call it the “Great C monster”! But everyone who’s heard it agrees that there’s nothing in all music to match the sheer verve of Schubert’s mighty final symphony. The charismatic Kevin John Edusei takes it for a Viennese whirl tonight, and for his first time in Liverpool, he’s found two more Austrian classics to set the mood: Schwertsik’s witty micro-symphony and Korngold’s gorgeous Violin Concerto, starring the amazing Simone Lamsma.
