Top orchestra introduces new principal conductor, with Schuber’'s Great Symphony

Has there been a curse on the Ninth since Beethoven? If so, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra are sure to smash it. In recent decades the RPO has become a world-class orchestra. This evening, led by their new principal conductor Lahav Shani, they perform Schubert's Ninth Symphony, an apotheosis of melody. Young Schumann was entranced by it! His Cello Concerto – which he himself never heard – reveals a melodic genius to match Schubert’s.
