Formerly chief conductor for the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and the London Symphony Orchestra, and Conductor Laureate for Staatskapelle Dresden: Sir Colin Davis' legacy includes the symphony cycle of Franz Schubert. This Sony Classical Masters Series 4 CD box set reveals both the understatement with which Davis led and his famed commitment to unusual tempi shifts that gave these interpretations a lasting distinction.
