Concert. Programme:

  • VOŘÍŠEK Symphony in D major
  • SCHUBERT Symphony No. 9 in C major "Great"

Jan Vaclav Hugo Voříšek (1791-1825) was a Bohemian composer who moved to Vienna. His musical output is small but delightful. It seems that he and Schubert were good friends. There are striking similarities between the respective first movements of the two symphonies in the programme. The Voříšek came first.
