If you thought Schubert's early symphonies were "minor" compared to his later works this recording will tell you that they are not. Beecham conveys all his sparkle and wit into these symphonies and make them major works. Don't let it disturb you that the sleve-notes tell you that only symphonie no. 5 deserves special attention. Schubert's early symphonies are all of the mould of Mozart's or Haydn's best. And with Beecham in the pit they are all excellent and excellently performed.
I have been listening to these recordings over and over and over again and they still remain my favourites. The recordings (all stereo!) sound very well for their day.

Some recordings are just hors concours. It's not necessarily that they are the `best' version available - that's far too absolute and arrogant a judgement to pass. It's rather that there will never be anything quite like them again. Yes, they are superlative performances - by definition. But there's something more, something perhaps indefinable, but instantly recognisable. We will not see their like again - though we may see something else equally as impressive. The first Callas Tosca is probably one; Furtwangler's Tristan another. I'd include Beecham's Boheme and perhaps his Carmen, too. Toscanini's Otello, definitely; Giulini's Verdi Requiem and Britten's own War Requiem, yes; Solti's Ring possibly. And so on. Readers will have other additions of their own, no doubt. But chances are they will tend to be large-scale works.

Here's a very strong candidate for that honour roll which is on a smaller scale. These are perfect gems of performances of these early Schubert symphonies, all three. Beecham brings to bear all his renowned wit, subtlety, rhythmic élan and inimitable melodic phrasing to lift them way above their usual allotted position as minor works in the Schubert canon. I defy you to restrain a smile of unalloyed pleasure from spreading across your face as you listen to this disc as Sir Thomas exercises the magic to which, at times like this, one believes only he holds the key. These days there are many other estimable performances of these symphonies, many of them far more authentic, but not one of them is quite in Beecham's `class'.

A Great Recording of the Century? Most definitely.

This is one of Beecham's very best recordings, in good stereo sound. The performances are immaculate and this classic CD should be in everyone's collection.
