A „new“ symphony in E Major by Franz Schubert, The Austrian composer Richard Dünser, together with the conductor Mario Venzago, has presented a new version of Schubert’s symphony fragment from the summer of 1821. The less inspired middle movements of the fragment have been replaced by supplemented drafts from the year of Schubert’s death. The result: a “new” great symphony by Schubert with a playing time of over 40 minutes; an original and gripping work that immediately convinces with its idiomatic and formal unity.
