"19th century commissions in Leipzig"

5:30 PM – 7:00 PM
Central Library in Copley Square

Description

As part of the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s “Leipzig Week”, scholars will consider that city’s rich history of bringing canonical works into the classical repertoire, including landmark works of Brahms (explored here by Dr. Daniel Beller-McKenna of the University of NH) and Schubert (whose “Great” C Major Symphony will be discussed by Dr. Mark DeVoto of Tufts University). A consideration of the outsized role played by Leipzig-based music publisher Breitkopf & Hartel will be led by Professor Christoph Wolff of Harvard University, who also serves as moderator.

The event begins with members of the BSO performing the first movement of Schubert’s String Quintet in C Major.
