With his Symphony in C Major (D 944), Schubert wanted to compete directly with Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. Schubert already knew early on that this would be no easy task, and pondered: “Who can ever do anything after Beethoven?” He took his chances and with his “Great” Symphony in C Major created a composition that captivates the listener with its length, size and multifaceted ideas.

His ardent desire rings out during the 11th Montagsstück with Zubin Mehta and the Bayerisches Staatsorchester. The former General Music Director returns to conduct the Bayerisches Staatsorchester for the performance.

Richard Strauss’s Four Last Songs are sung on this evening by soprano Camilla Nylund, taking over for Anja Harteros, who was originally planned to sing. More than half a century after their appearance, they have become the embodiment of Strauss’s late work. Three poems by Hesse and one by Eichendorff provided the composer the inspiration to unite a high female voice with an affectionately arranged orchestra.
