Symphony No.8 in B minor - Unfinished - 2nd movement Schubert Help Opus Details
For feedback and questions, please contact Victor Gomersall.
This is the bright and cheerful theme from the second movement of Schubert's 8th Symphony The Unfinished. After an introductory motiv consisting of a descending scale on the cellos, the cheery tune emerges on the violins.

Schubert composed just two movements of this symphony, in 1822, and then he abandoned it entirely. He probably lost his inspiration at this time, because he realized he was ill with syphilis, he had arguments with his friend Vogl, and a financial disagreement with his publisher. This 2nd movement is light and airy, when compared to the dramas of the first movement of Schubert's Unfinished Symphony.
