Notes & Reviews:

Roger Norrington and the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra SWR continue their survey of the major works of the 19th Century symphonic repertoire with two symphonies by Schubert. Throughout his decade of working with the RSO, Norrington has transformed the sound of a modern symphony orchestra into an ensemble capable of delivering authentic historically informed music making. By employing both the benefits of authentic performance practice and technically superior modern instruments, Norrington has left a legacy that has opened the ears of romantic "purists" as well as delighting devotees of authentic performance practice

BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2012
Norrington delivers an impressively austere account of No. 4's dramatic slow introduction, and his performances throughout are imbued with characteristic insight and intelligence. Only his easy-going view of the Fifth Symphony's minuet is curiously at variance with the music's character.

Gramophone Magazine, November 2012
For all his occasional idiosyncrasies, Norrington's freshness and imagination in Schubert are always compelling. If your taste is for period-style performances, this coupling, brilliantly played and finely recorded, has no rivals.
