Notes & Reviews:

On the final disc of a complete cycle, Thomas Dausgaard and the Swedish Chamber Orchestra offer Franz Schubert's first two symphonies as well as two fillers, of which one is the rarely heard Funeral March from the unfinished opera Adrast. Both youthful symphonies betray influences of Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven; nevertheless, they contain abundant proof of Schubert's burgeoning melodic genius. The previous discs in the cycle have met with critical acclaim and distinctions, with reviewers welcoming the fresh approach towards the undisputed masterpieces and the less familiar works.

BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2014
Some might have dismissed these symphonies as imitations of the teenage Schubert's Classical heroes, but in Dausgaard's hands they emerge as elegant, lively scores already bearing the stamp of the composer's sophisticated harmonic and melodic imagination.

Gramophone Magazine, December 2014
The definition and dynamism that Thomas Dausgaard and the Swedish Chamber Orchestra have been bringing to their cycle of Schubert symphonies are qualities that are radiantly replicated in these performances of the First and Second...Dausgaard and his orchestra fully attune themselves to this teenage Schubertian world.
