Change out of your workweek ball-gown and slip into your weekend best for an elegant evening in the restored 1919 jewel-box music hall. The performance begins with Franz Schubert's Symphony no. 8, also called the Unfinished Symphony, a two-movement 1822 masterpiece begun by the then-25-year-old composer and left still unfinished upon his death six years later. The mighty musical score combines catchy classical melodies with sweeping pre-romantic moments and remains a favorite for classical-music aficionados and dilettantes alike. The concert also includes a performance of Anton Bruckner's Symphony no. 7, the Austrian artist's most popular piece, written in the early 1880s and graced with a mournful adagio that climaxes with a cymbal crash to honor the composer's then-dying friend and contemporary, Richard Wagner.
