Friday 8 December 2023, 7.30pm at St. John's, Smith Square
Conductor: Mark Forkgen
with: Southbank Sinfonia
London Concert Choir and Southbank Sinfonia present an evening of choral and orchestral music by Schubert and Mendelssohn to open the Christmas Festival at St John’s.
Why Schubert never finished his Eighth Symphony has been one of music’s great unanswered questions for nearly 200 years, but the work’s two movements are complete in themselves, as the sublime second movement resolves the tensions of the first.
