Since 2011 Sir Roger Norrington has been The Stuttgart RSO’s Conductor Laureate, so remains committed to the orchestra. These recordings of Schubert symphonies continue their successful partnership.
Franz Schubert: Symphony No. 5 in B flat major, D. 485
II. Andante con moto
III. Menuetto: Allegro molto
IV. Allegro vivace
Franz Schubert: Symphony No. 4 in C minor, D. 417, "Tragic"
I. Adagio molto - Allegro vivace
III. Menuetto: Allegro vivace
“For all his occasional idiosyncrasies, Norrington's freshness and imagination in Schubert are always compelling. If your taste is for period-style performances, this coupling, brilliantly played and finely recorded, has no rivals.”
“Norrington delivers an impressively austere account of No. 4's dramatic slow introduction, and his performances throughout are imbued with characteristic insight and intelligence. Only his easy-going view of the Fifth Symphony's minuet is curiously at variance with the music's character.”
