Note from the Blog Runner (it’s like Blade Runner but much less exciting):
I apologize for not updating for the past few weeks!! Things got wild around finals time and I was enjoying my break between semesters so much that I forgot to…update. Oops!
The new semester has just begun for me, which means I’m back to being quite busy, but I’m going to try to put some stuff in the queue each week so that there will be something new at least every few days.
Thanks for sticking around, and I love you all!
Hi all! I just listened to a recording of Schubert’s famous “Unfinished” symphony on my local classical radio station, but curiously enough, it had two additional movements added by Brain Newbould based on scholarly studies of Schubert’s music and some sketches that he left behind. Thus, the “Unfinished” symphony becomes…Finished! And I must say I quite liked the newer parts of it, though this isn’t the first time someone has attempted to complete the work.
For many of you this may be old news, but if you’re a bit behind on the latest goings-on in classical music like me, here’s an article with some more detail on what I’m talking about: Composer Completes Schubert’s 200-year-old Musical Puzzle
I’d like to take a quick minute to apologize for my absence these past few weeks! I hadn’t realized it had been so long since I last posted here with school starting and all of that.
Studying music is keeping me just as busy as I thought it would; my time for quality tumblr posts is limited, and so I post primarily on my personal blog right now, which you can find HERE.
However, as usual, I’ll always find the time to keep this blog up too :-) once I settle into my school schedule more, I’ll undoubtedly find more time to post here. Thanks for sticking with me!
