I can not stand Menuhin as a violinist but his is a remarkable musician as a conductor, as so many of his recordings with orchestras have proved. These beautifully crafted performances of Schubert's earlier symphonies are no exception. Every symphony here is played with glowing warmth and polish.

Menuhin isn't a pro conductor, but the spirit is perfect 11 Jun. 2006
By Santa Fe Listener - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Yehudi Menuhin had lost most of his virtuoso technique in later life and shifted his emphasis from the violin to conducting. His efforts were restricted mostly to impromptu groups like the Bath Festival Orch. and the Menuhin Festival Orch. But as this bargain two-fer shows, a bootstrap conductor and talented pickup musicians can do wonders. The secret is Menuhin's musicianship--even imparted by amateur podium technique, the spirit of Schubert shines through.

The early symphonies are well suited to chamber forces. Schubert scored for the same numbers that Haydn and Mozart used, but even in Sym. #1 he had semi-heroic ambitions. Menuhin escapes the pitfall of sounding dainty and cautious. His allegros generally have real attack and force. In the slow movements he is mostly quick and lilting, and his Minuets likewise. You won't semse the dark shadows that emrege under Harnoncourt, not to mention the Concertgebouw's polish amd gleaming tone, but you won't hear Karajan's fat textures and inflated phrasing, either.

Perhaps because Menuhin wasn't a finished condcutor, these performances have been also-rans in the Schubert catalog. They deserve better, even though at times (e.g., the first movement of the Fifth) there's a tendency toward underplaying and sticking to the same mezzo forte dynamics. It's quite a trick to get six symphonies onto two CDs--a lot of repeats are skipped. Even if I won't turn to Menuhin for the ultimate interpretations, he warmly evokes summer music in halcyon times.

Early Schubert Symphonies 17 July 2011
By Christopher F. Dodrill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Just as in his version of the "Great", Yehudi Menuhin performs all of these early gems with great verve and vitality. He brings a freshness to these seldom played Schubert symphonies, and most of his times are notably quicker than any others I've heard. Youthful, that's what they are! The orchestra and CD transfer sound fine. Highly recommended.
Capturing Schubert 5 Jan. 2015
By Christopher Ammons - Published on Amazon.com
These performances of Schubert symphonies by Menuhin were the first pieces of classical music that I learned to love. I listened to the CDs dozens of times and never got tired of them.

The tempo is fast and there is an appropriately energetic and youthful spirit in all of the symphonies. The musical personality of the teen-aged Schubert is captured. I've yet to find a cycle of early Schubert symphonies that I prefer to these.
