About This Publication

In 1822, the German composer Franz Schubert began his Symphony No. 8 in B minor, completing two movements and an apparent study of a third before he died. It is perhaps his best-known and cherished work, often called The Unfinished Symphony, and has stirred many composers to try their hand at completing it -- so far without success. "Impossible!" some would say, "How could anyone capture what was in the spirit and soul of the original composer?" Some music historians and scholars have labored to prove that the composition was actually complete in its two movements, and nothing more was intended by the author. But to the trained ear of a classical musician, it is inescapably lacking a satisfying conclusion, failing even to return to the key in which it was begun. Such people wish that the spirit that inspired the first two movements, and gave a mere glimpse of the third, could be brought back to complete the unfinished symphony...
