All seven of Schubert’s completed symphonies - plus the B minor fragment known as the ‘Unfinished’ - enjoy a popularity now which they haven‘t always had. Only the twentieth century gave these pieces the recognition they deserved and an appreciation of their true emotional depth.

All display his gift for pure and lovely melody, but there are great differences between the restraint of the earlier six symphonies and the last two, where he fully employed Romantic expression. His last symphony, the ‘Great’ C major Symphony, is both classic and romantic, combining the vitality of the classical period and the melancholy of his personality, the architecture of late 18th century classical music with an innovative and daring approach to structure, harmony and orchestration.

He mastered the symphonic form in his own way. This 4-CD set of the complete symphonies contains performances of symphony Nos 1- 4 by The Hanover Band, conducted by Roy Goodman. These are part of their acclaimed cycle, recorded in the warm acoustic of All Saints’ Church in Tooting, which was the first ever complete set of Schubert’s symphonies performed on historic instruments. Gramophone hailed the performances as ‘striking and exciting”, and “consistently bringing out the joy of the young Schubert’s inspiration.” Symphony Nos 5-6 and Nos 8-9 are performed with polish and vitality by the Camerata Salzburg, directed by the great Hungarian conductor and violinist, Sándor Végh.

As the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s first principal guest conductor from 1969 to 1972, Giulini was adored; from 1976 to 1978 he made some of his greatest recordings for Deutsche Grammophon – here they are, collected into a single box for the first time.

This is the follow-up to our Giulini/Los Angeles box last year (4778840). Here are the complete recordings that Giulini made with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra on DG – essential performances from Schubert to Prokofiev and Britten – many now being restored to the catalogue – and including his Grammy® award-winning Mahler Ninth.

Capbox packaging - New liner notes by Bernard Jacobson in English, German and French - Sung texts in English, German and French

“marching against the accord of Mahler representing psychosis in sound, Giulini found the natural dramatic grain inside an intensity of textural clarity. His Ninth is tender and oddly vulnerable, qualities normally associated with Schubert” Classic FM Magazine, September 2011 *****
