Symphony: Water Music / 17 min

SCHUBERT
Symphony in B minor, Unfinished / 22 min

J. STRAUSS, Jr.
On the Beautiful Blue Danube / 10 min

Artists

  • David Danzmayr, conductor

Fun Facts

  • Symphony in 60 concerts include a pre-show happy hour, local craft beer, and a chance to mingle with musicians post-performance.
  • Scholars are still mystified as to why Schubert didn’t finish Symphony No. 8; some speculate that it was due to the onset of syphilis that would eventually kill him at age 31.
  • A passionate advocate for contemporary composers and their work, Libby Larsen co-founded the Minnesota Composers Forum, now the American Composers Forum, in 1973 to assist composers in a transitional time for American arts.

*This work is part of Minnesota Orchestra's season-long exploration and celebration of American music. Learn more about our American Expressions festival in January 2019.
