Schubert: Symphony No. 5 in B-flat major – Works for Violin and Orchestra

by Zsolt Kalló (violin); Capella Savaria (on period instruments); Nicholas McGegan (conductor)

“O Mozart! immortal Mozart! What countless impressions of a brighter, better life hast thou stamped upon our souls!” – wrote Schubert in his diary a few months before he started composing his Symphony No. 5. There is a distinctly Mozartian aura to be felt in this piece although the romantic harmonies herald the beginning of a new era: the Concert for Violin and Orchestra, the Rondo and the Polonaise all display the characteristic traits of budding Romanticism.
