SCHUBERT, F.: Symphonies Nos. 8 and 9 (Slovak Philharmonic, Budapest Failoni Chamber Orchestra, Halasz)

Schubert’s last two symphonies are ambitious in scale and brimming with striking ideas, though only two movements of the Symphony No 8 were finished and the score rediscovered and first performed 43 years after the composer’s death. The ‘Great’ C major Symphony marks the summit of Schubert’s achievement in the form, combining his unforgettable lyrical gift with the spirit of Beethoven. Michael Halász has been acclaimed for his “delightful performances” of Schubert. (Penguin Guide on 8.553094, Symphonies 3 and 6)
