Notes & Reviews:

The "grand" Symphony in C major by Franz Schubert bears the official date of 1828. After its premiere in 1839 Robert Schumann had the highest words of praise for it: "These are human voices, all the instruments are brilliant beyond measure - and then this heavenly length." He thus supplied posterity with the key terms that continue to be used today to describe Schubert's symphonic music. The Musikkollegium has been active in Winterthur since 1629 - which makes this orchestra one of Europe's most richly traditional musical institutions. Douglas Boyd has been the principal conductor of the Musikkollegium Winterthur since 2009.

"Characteristically warm and affectionate readings of two of Schubert's best-loved symphonic scores, conveyed here with the insight that has become Douglas Boyd's trademark"-london24.com
