Program Notes

It's important students experience the works of great composers, and this lovely transcription from Schubert's Fifth Symphony will do just that. It's a delicate 3/4 time work that is helpful for teaching the refinement of classical style performance.

- Program Note adapted from publisher

Franz Schubert's Symphony No. 5 in B♭ major, D. 485, was written mainly in September 1816 and completed on October 3, 1816.] It was finished six months after the completion of his previous symphony.

The slow Andante con Moto second movement opens with a theme in two repeated stanzas. Following that, there is a modulation to C♭ that is very characteristic of Schubert, even at age 19. The return to the main theme is straightforward, passing through G minor on the way. There is a repetition of the distant modulation afterwards, though to G♭ this time and with a more immediate return.
