  • This DVD constitutes the third of the 'single' releases from the second box set of symphonies conducted by Günter Wand (DVWW-COWANDBOX2).

  • Wand's Schubert is distinguished above all by its inspired perfection, a perfection that reflects his inner attitude to the music: "A certain innocence, a certain purity, it's wonderful, a balm for the soul. Music has this effect, even though it is written without any intention of creating such an effect."

  • Günter Wand (1912-2002) made an imperative contribution not only to our understanding of Bruckner but also to that of Schubert as a symphonist. Both composers were particularly close to his heart and his international breakthrough came - late in his life - with his highly-acclaimed Bruckner and Schubert recordings 1974-81.

  • In the television recordings from the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival that are now released for the first time on DVD, Günter Wand and his inimitable style of conducting are brought back to life in a particularly impressive way.
