Symphony No. 6 in C Major D 589 "Little C Major"
The Staatskapelle Berlin and its General Music Director Daniel Barenboim perform Schubert’s complete symphonies, commemorating the composer’s 220th birthday. Spanning a mere decade and a half from the efforts of the teenaged Schubert to the late masterpieces, these works, heard in the sequence of their creation, reveal the astonishing stylistic development of one of the greatest composers of the Romantic era. The symphony cycle is complemented by Barenboim’s solo traversal of Schubert’s piano sonatas.
