Schubert's mighty 'Unfinished' Symphony ushered in the Romantic era with music that is by turns, bittersweet, brooding and bold - qualities the Viennese audience at its premiere relished and that sublimely echo Mozart's 'Elvira Madigan' (popularised by the 1967 Swedish film of the same name), a serenely beautiful concerto brimming with exquisite melodies. And although the sumptuous Emperor Waltz underlines why the younger Johann Strauss will forever be known as 'The Waltz King', his sparkling polkas and rapturous overture to Die Fledermaus are Viennese music-making at its most ornate and delectable. And clap the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra to a well-earned summer break with Johann Strauss Senior's thrilling Radetzky March.
