Abstract:

Schubert's Symphony in B minor, known as "Unfinished," has been one of the central works of the musical literature for over a century, since its discovery and first performance thirty-seven years after the composer's death. This volume includes the complete musical score of the work, and a stimulating selection of materials illuminating its historical and musical background.For this edition, the musical text that Johannes Brahms prepared for the Schubert Gesamtausgabe has been revised and corrected on the basis of a thorough comparison with Schubert's manuscript. The surviving piano sketches for the symphony, including the incomplete third movement, are for the first time presented in the same volume with the score; the orchestrated fragment of the third movement is also reprinted. The complex history of the symphony and the riddle of its incompleteness are traced in essays referring to original source material, while the editor's detailed analysis and his selection of views and comments (ranging from a review of the first performance up to the present) acquaint the reader with the views of such figures as Wolf, Dvor̆ák, Stravinsky, and Copland. A selective bibliography is also provided. -- from dust jacket.
