“Unfinished Masterpieces” – Southern Maine Symphony Orchestra and University Chorale
November 9 @ 2:00 pm
The program will include Schubert’s, Symphony No. 8, in B minor “Unfinished” conducted by Hanna Flewelling, graduate conducting associate, and Mozart’s great Mass in C minor, conducted by Robert Lehmann.
The Southern Maine Symphony Orchestra will be joined by the USM Chorale, the Southern Maine Youth Chorale* and other select high school choirs for a performance of Mozart’s largest choral-orchestral composition, Mass in C minor. Although nearly complete, Mozart did not finish the last setting of the liturgy leaving it to various musicologists to suggest possible solutions. The heartfelt Et Incarnatus Est, written for his wife Constanze, is surely amongst the most beautiful settings of this text ever composed. A generation later, Schubert would leave his 8th symphony unfinished as well which has lent the work a mystical aura and contributed to its great popularity.Buy tickets
