Notes & Reviews:

Sir Roger Norrington's approach to adapting historical performance practice for a modern symphony orchestra has yielded excellent results. This recording features the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra performing Schubert's most famous work, Symphony No. 8.

Gramophone Magazine, July 2013
In the Unfinished Symphony the gauntness and grandeur of the sound-palette...allied to the essentially classical temper of Norrington's reading give the music a powerful sense of tragic inevitability.

MusicWeb International, 4th September 2013
Norrington brings a satisfying sense of completeness to his interpretation, and the playing of the Stuttgart orchestra is precise and distinguished in every department.
