Schubert and Beethoven

With flavors of Haydn, Beethoven, and Rossini, Schubert’s epic Sixth Symphony is a rollercoaster of somberness, charm, serenity, and humor, with the wind section shining brightest here. Penned by a composer just turned 21, the piece is permeated by an overall sense of youthfulness. Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra Artistic Director Jukka-Pekka Saraste leads the dance that is Beethoven’s self-described “most excellent symphony,” showcasing the composer’s exuberant and optimistic side in full display.
