Fanz Schubert started writing his eight symphony, in the key of B minor, in 1822. However, he dropped it after finishing the piano version for the third movement (he orchestrated only the two first movements). To this day, scholars disagree on why he left the Symphony no. 8 unfinished, though many cite as a reason distraction cause by the composition of the Wanderer fantasy. Nowadays, Schubert's Symphony no. in B minor, D. 759, is usually called the Unfinished Symphony, and considered by many of the first truly romantic symphonies, due to its emphasis on expression and breakthrough harmony, even if it is bound by a classical architecture.
