Notes & Reviews:

Import Hybrid-SACD pressing.

BBC Music Magazine
Here's an excitingly combative, and ultimately very plausible new look at Schubert...Dausgaard somehow manages to approach the surviving two movements of Schubert's B minor Symphony as though we didn't all know that it remained 'unfinished'...For once it was hard not to regret the absence of an energetic scherzo or finale.

Gramophone Magazine
In this issue, helped also by the clean BIS recording, textures are transparent and attack crisp...A disc that may disconcert some Schubertians but which, very well recorded, offers a consistently refreshing view of both masterpieces.

The Telegraph
This excellent Swedish orchestra performs Schubert's last two symphonies the modern way, with faster tempos, punchier accents and a leaner sound. The result is like having a layer of varnish removed from a much-loved painting.
