Wiener Philharmoniker

Symphony No. 9 in C major, D944 'The Great'

London Symphony Orchestra


Born in Vienna in April 1902, the cheery-looking Josef Krips seems to have been pre-destined to achieve eminence in the Viennese classics. He recorded with both, the Wiener Philharmoniker and the key London orchestras for Decca in the 1940s, 50s and 60s and the interpretations have genuine expressive power while remaining devoid of exaggeration or affectation.

Two of Schubert’s best-loved and most-played symphonies are here coupled and both have been considered benchmarks in their recorded history. The Eighth with the Wiener Philharmoniker was Krips’s last recording for Decca. This issue forms part of a series of five reissues devoted to the art of Josef Krips.

Recording producers: Ray Minshull (Symphony No. 9); Christopher Raeburn (Symphony No. 8)

Recording engineers: Kenneth Wilkinson (Symphony No. 9); Colin Moorfoot (Symphony No. 8)

Recording locations: Kingsway Hall, London, May 1958 (Symphony No. 9); Sofiensaal, Vienna, Austria, March 1969 (Symphony No. 8)

“In the Unfinished, Krips treads a marvellously accurate line between flexibility and control. The Ninth is spacious in sound and interpretation, with sharp dynamic contrasts.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2011 ****

“This is a splendid Great C major; classical in conception and full of propulsive energy” Gramophone Magazine

“an unforced, flowing and wonderfully satisfying performance’ [Symphony No. 8] … the Ninth…has long being counted as one his very finest records, perhaps the finest … unforced spontaneity … The playing is polished, yet flexible, dramatically strong … this is a Schubert coupling to treasure” Penguin Guide

Symphony No. 8 in B minor, D759 'Unfinished'


During the 1950s, Karl Böhm made a handful of orchestral recordings for Decca with the Wiener Philharmoniker of music by, among others, Mozart, Beethoven, Brahms and Weber. Reappearing here, for the first time on CD, internationally, are his swift recordings of Beethoven’s Eighth and of two Schubert symphonies (Nos. 5 and 8). Never imposing his will too strongly on his Viennese orchestra – and they had these classics in their blood – he directs performances that are fresh and gives full rein to the Vienna Philharmonic’s wonderful tonal resources. Add the acoustic of the Grosser Saal at the Musikverein, familiar as daily bread to all the participants, and you have the best kind of tradition.

Recording producer: Victor Olof

Recording engineer: Cyril Windebank

Recording location: Grosser Saal, Musikverein, Vienna, Austria, May 1953 (Beethoven), June 1954 (Schubert)

BIS releases the next in their ‘Opening Doors’ series in which Thomas Dausgaard and the Swedish Chamber Orchestra make a case for performing 19th-century symphonic works with a chamber ensemble. They have previously recorded Schumann’s symphonies as well as a recording of Dvorák’s Sixth and Ninth Symphonies. This disc now features the final works in Franz Schubert’s symphonic genre both of which are arguably the most celebrated of all Schubert symphonies.

“This excellent Swedish orchestra performs Schubert’s last two symphonies the modern way, with faster tempos, punchier accents and a leaner sound. The result is like having a layer of varnish removed from a much-loved painting.” The Telegraph, 7th May 2010

“Here's an excitingly combative, and ultimately very plausible new look at Schubert...Dausgaard somehow manages to approach the surviving two movements of Schubert's B minor Symphony as though we didn't all know that it remained 'unfinished'...For once it was hard not to regret the absence of an energetic scherzo or finale” BBC Music Magazine, July 2010 ****

“In this issue, helped also by the clean BIS recording, textures are transparent and attack crisp...A disc that may disconcert some Schubertians but which, very well recorded, offers a consistently refreshing view of both masterpieces.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2010
