Schubert: Symphony no 9 / Mackerras, Philharmonia Orchestra

Album Summary

>Schubert, Franz : Symphony no 9 in C major, D 944 "Great"
Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The 'Great C major' has often been cited as the first of the big romantic symphonies and an open door leading to the Romantic era. We owe the belated emergence of this symphony, 11 years after Schubert's death, to Schumann who described it as "a symphony for the benefit and enjoyment of the whole world." The orchestra prides itself on collaborations with the finest musicians of our day including guest conductor Sir Charles MacKerras.
