"Who can do anything after Beethoven?" Schubert is said to have asked. With regard to Schubert's "unfinished symphony" written in 1822, Alfred Einstein answered (1950): "In its confidence in pure sound - nothing more tonally enchanting had been written than the second movement with its immortal dialogue between oboe and clarinet over the wavering ground of the strings - the B minor symphony proved that there was still something to be done. Next to this "most famous Schubert", the Vienna Philharmonic has placed the "most famous Bruckner". Bruckner himself gave his fourth symphony the sobriquet "The Romantic" - at least hunting horns and forest noise could be heard. Composed in 1874, it has undergone many profound revisions; the second version of 1878 is played in Bonn, with a newly composed Scherzo - thus the symphony was also included in the new critical edition.
