About this Recording

SCHUBERT, F.: Symphonies Nos. 8, "Unfinished" and 9, "Great" (Furtwangler) (1950-1951)

This disc couples two of the finest recordings of Schubert’s two best-known symphonies. In Furtwängler’s hands the Unfinished is etched with aching intensity as he conjures sadness, resignation, rage and, finally, solace. In the Great C Major Furtwängler exploits to the full Schubert’s emotionally explosive music. In the slow movement, the heart of the symphony and of this performance, he opens up vistas of power, passion and communicative expressiveness that other accounts come nowhere near.The Finale is a tour de force of sustained momentum.
