Night and Dreams I
Night and Dreams 1
Schubert’s Lieder are among the finest Romantic works. Fascinating, they were often orchestrated by Schubert himself or by the composers of the next generation, most famously Liszt, Brahms, Strauss, and Berlioz.
These orchestrations are a treasure for audiences, shedding remarkable light on the works. Schubert’s Symphony n° 8 “Unfinished” — or completed, if we accept the idea of a Schubert dream in two parts — is one of the world’s most regularly performed pieces.
