National Symphony Orchestra: Noseda conducts Mahler's Fifth and Schubert

Thursday, February 20, 2020 - Saturday, February 22, 2020

National Symphony Orchestra

Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony is not unfinished at all. Its brilliance lies in the composer’s deliberate decision to leave the masterpiece as is, and no music lover would have it any other way. With compassion for man’s mortality, Schubert packs a lifetime of hope, suffering, and joy into just two perfect movements. Concluding the program is Mahler’s expressive, powerful Symphony No. 5, balancing heartache and glory.
