Notes & Reviews:

Schubert's complete symphonies are performed here by the legendary Staatskapelle Dresden under the inspired direction of celebrated conductor Herbert Blomstedt, praised by Gramophone for his 'incomparably refined sensitivity and canny interpretative prowess.' Recorded between 1978 and 1981 in the famous acoustics of the Lukaskirche in Dresden, this Berlin Classics gem is now available on Brilliant Classics.

MusicWeb International, 14th April 2014
The playing of the Staatskapelle Dresden is quite excellent, with fine work from the strings and commendable clarity of wind textures. This may be "big-band" Schubert, but never once did I sense a heaviness to the ensemble that impaired my enjoyment.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Lukaskirche, Dresden (1978-1981).
