This is a gloriously rich and sublime performance of Schubert's 9th, played with vibrant orchestral colours and noble beauty. Beautifully recorded.

After several great recordings, particularly of the earlier symphonies, I'm afraid the late 1980s, early 1990s, Naxos Schubert symphony cycle with Michael Halász and, here, the Budapest-based Failoni Orchestra ends with a failure.

Tempos are rather awry in the first movement, and the Andante is dull, the Scherzo fine, but the finale limp. Whether Maestro Halász and the Failoni were bored rigid by this arguably overlong work is hard to say, but they don't seem at all engaged. The recording, per se, is very good.

Sadly, after so many successes, a disc to avoid, I'm afraid. There are many finer performances out there, from what is one of Solti's best recordings Symphony 9 " Great ", Mackerras Schubert: Symphony No 9 'The Great' /Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment · Mackerras, and Gardiner's second recording Symphony No.9 (Monteverdi Chr, Gardiner), to name but three.
