Notes & Reviews:

American Record Guide, July/August 2013
All the opening movements seem reasonable in tempo. No. 4 is pretty reasonable and attractive. The introduction is Adagio Molto, so Maazel's slow tempo seems fine. This time Allegro Vivace is very nice - about the same speed as the best conductors. No. 5 is a very tender and sweet work. In No. 6, which I've always thought sounded a bit like Rossini, things go pretty well. The Ninth is the crowning glory of the series. I recently heard a 9th in concert that made me ask myself why I like this symphony. Maazel confirms my faith in Schubert. This is never boring, and all the beautiful moments are made the most of. He gives it a lyrical treatment. It's a pretty good set with gorgeous playing and sound, and Maazel is never perverse in these symphonies. This is certainly worth considering. There is applause at the end of each symphony.
