Notes & Reviews:

Following the critically acclaimed releases of PTC 5186 372, PentaTone presents a recording of Schubert Symphonies 6 and 8 (unfinished) which also features the Flemish Philharmonic Orchestra and Herreweghe.

MusicWeb International, March 2013
Herreweghe and his Flemish players are clean, precise and pretty, with very little of any dark emotion. [the Unfinished] sounds much more like a piece from the Classical period, and arguably, that is what Herreweghe intends...While this would not be my prime recommendation for either symphony, there is much to admire in both orchestral execution and Herreweghe's thoughtful interpretations.

Notes & Reviews:

Recording information: Queen Elizabeth Hall, Antwerp, Belgium (10/2011).
