Abbado’s Schubert symphony-cycle is a benchmark recording — exhibiting a “freshness of approach and authentic Schubertian warmth and glow” (Gramophone).
Added bonus: Joseph Joachim’s great orchestration of the Grand Duo — originally for piano duet, now a virtual symphony in its own right.
“An outstanding set . . . naturally sunny and warm in expression” The Penguin Guide
“Abbado's is an outstanding set in every way. Rarely has he made recordings of the central Viennese classics which find him so naturally sunny and warm in his expression. The playing of the Chamber Orchestra Europe is both beautiful and deeply committed, consistently refined and elegant, but with ample power when necessity.”
