4.0 out of 5 stars Straightforward "Unfinished" and fine Symphony 5 from Michael Halász and the Slovak Philharmonic, 25 Oct 2012

This review is from: Schubert: Symphonies Nos 5 & 8/Rosamunde (Audio CD)
This is the oldest recording in the Naxos Schubert symphony cycle that was released in the late 1980s and early 1990s; this particular disc was recorded in the Moyzes Hall in Bratislava in June 1988. Here, the fine conductor Michael Halász directs the Slovak Philharmonic rather than the Budapest Failoni Orchestra used in all of the other recordings.

Whilst perhaps not very mysterious at the opening, the "Unfinished" symphony, I think, benefits somewhat from Halász's unadorned approach and the second movement is very good. Better, though, is the recording of Schubert's Symphony No.5, where we are given a well-sprung performance exhibiting some zest.

The disc also includes the second set of ballet music from "Rosamunde" as a fill-up.

Whilst it is true that there are better "Unfinished" symphony recordings out there, at present "penny prices", this well-recorded Naxos disc will do very nicely for many listeners.
