Semyon Bychkov conducts Berio and Walton

What musical direction would Franz Schubert have taken had he not died in 1828 when he was only 31 years of age? One possible answer is Luciano Berio’s symphonic collage Rendering, which assembles Schubert’s sketches from the last weeks of his life. In this concert from 2011, Semyon Bychkov also conducts William Walton’s First Symphony, a work full of fire and colour, revealing occasional flashes of the influence of Bruckner and Hindemith.
