Notes & Reviews:
This outstanding performance was recorded as part of the Philharmonia Orchestra's 70th concert season. Led by Honorary Conductor for Life Christoph von Dohnanyi, this recording was taken live at the Royal Festival Hall in October of 2015. Believed by many to be Schubert's greatest symphony, this work is interpreted by Dohnanyi beautifully, and with grandeur and intensity.
The Scotsman, 28th May 2016
It opens with a freshness and dignity, un-rushed but directional, from which delicious colours and nuances seamlessly emerge. The Andante adds mellifluous intimacy, the Scherzo a boisterous joy, and in the finale a resolute finesse epitomises the spritely, judicious precision of Dohnßnyi's lively reading.
Recording information: Royal Festival Hall, London, England (10/01/2015).
