Schubert: The finished “Unfinished”

Kammerorchester Basel

(Sony Classical)

There have been many attempts to finish Schubert’s Symphony No.8, the “Unfinished”. Only two movements survive, though a piano sketch exists of a third and some scholars reckon the incidental music to Rosamunde may harbour the fourth. Conductor Mario Venzago has tapped into these sources for his completion. The Kammerorchester Basel gives the existing two movements highly-charged performances, but the tension drops thereafter. The finished symphony’s proportions are right, and it all sounds like Schubert, but we need the genius of a master to breathe life into it.
