Franz Schubert: Symphony No. 1 in D Op. 82

Franz Schubert: Symphony No. 1 in D Op. 82

Franz Schubert was just 16 when he completed his First Symphony, and it was one of the composer’s best pieces to date. The Symphony No. 1 came after earlier efforts to compose a symphony – both instances the composer had started and scrapped what he had – as well as a handful of completed overtures. In this work, Schubert shows off his eighteenth century roots he gained from studying with Antonio Salieri, and much of the symphony is Classical in nature.
