PentaTone continue their collaboration with the Royal Flemish Philharmonic and Herreweghe.

“Herreweghe and his Flemish players are clean, precise and pretty, with very little of any dark emotion. [the Unfinished] sounds much more like a piece from the Classical period, and arguably, that is what Herreweghe intends...While this would not be my prime recommendation for either symphony, there is much to admire in both orchestral execution and Herreweghe’s thoughtful interpretations.” MusicWeb International, March 2013

Musikkollegium Winterthur, Douglas Boyd

Following on from their release last month of Schubert's incidental music to Rosamunde (MDG9011633), the Musikkollegium Winterthur brings us Schubert's last symphonic works. The Musikkollegium has been active in Winterthur since 1629; Douglas Boyd became principal conductor in 2009.

“Characteristically warm and affectionate readings of two of Schubert’s best-loved symphonic scores, conveyed here with the insight that has become Douglas Boyd’s trademark” london24.com, 17th June 2011

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.

“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

“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
