Notes & Reviews:

The Concert Hall Society engaged Fritz Busch to make this recording at the Gottfried Semper Stadthaus in Winterthur in 1949 at short notice, after discovering that Busch was in Zurich to conduct for the radio. Both the Mozart and Schubert receive readings full of energy and lyricism.

"The energetic Fritz Busch enjoys a major addition to his relatively small recorded legacy (originally issued via Concert Hall Society) with these August-September 1949 readings of Mozart and Schubert in the Winterthur venue Busch (1890-1951) had frequented since 1923. Leader Peter Rybar (1913-2002) called Busch 'the greatest of all Mozart conductors'... Brisk tempos - and no repeats - notwithstanding, the Mozart 1776 eight-movement Haffner Serenade benefits from a clarity and generous pulse that move the music forward in opulent, affectionate terms...The Schubert B-flat Major Symphony evinces the same happy urgency of expression, no dawdling and no false sentiment." - Audiophile Audition
