I totally disagree with "A Customer"'s review... In fact, while I find Beecham's recording of the 3rd and Furtwangler's both eighths (DG & EMI) marvelous, Kleiber's recordings come from a different world. He takes all the music with an incredible wit and pushes the musicians (YES) to incredible limits. I always have a "breathless" feeling when I listen to his recordings (and I have every single one of them, including some pirate CDs from Memories and else). But this is Kleiber... He is more in the Toscanini vein, but I love every single note he displays. And, the most important is that we HEAR THEM ALL (the notes & the instruments). Despite the high (too high sometimes) speed in the 3rd movement of the 3rd symphony, you still can hear all instruments with unbelievable precision.

Great recording of the 8th as well. I do recommend it to set aside recordings of FURT (the ultimate master) or Klemperer in the 8th, and Harnoncourt in the 3rd.

Beautiful as it is, for me Schubert's "Unfinished" is one of those pieces which has become a touch over-familiar over the years. At a stroke Kleiber's performance sweeps all that away and compels you to listen to it afresh. It takes a very special musician to achieve something like that and they didn't come any more special than Kleiber, the conductors' conductor. I'd dock him one star for playing the slow movement of no.3 too fast, but that's a minor point in the context of the disc overall. The "Unfinished" is the star of the show here, and the Vienna Phil.play it for Kleiber as if their lives depend on it (as they do in his magnificent Beethoven 5th - what a coupling THAT would make).

Don't miss this.

Schubert;s music is largely tender and elegiac. I am afraid this sounds far too relentless and hard driven. The shrill early digital recording does not help. For a moving Unfinished, listen to Gunter Wand or Colin Davis.

Considering the myth surrounding Carlos Kleiber, I was severely disappointed by his interpretation of Schubert's 3rd symphony. All the tempos are way too fast, sometimes absurdely so. In some instances, you can even hear the players wanting to play slower but being pushed on by the conductor. In contrast, the ritartandi are exaggerated. And the balance of instruments is not natural, it sounds like a lot of changes have been made after the recording in the mixing room. The Menuett, originally a dance tempo, is so fast that nobody would want to dance to it. If it weren't for the superb sound of the Vienna Philharmonic (and of course the genius of the composer) you could not listen to this music at all.
There is a great recording of the 3rd (along with the 5th and 6th) by Sir Thomas Beecham and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. When you hear it compared to this interpretation it really is a revelation.
