4.0 out of 5 stars Good but a little slick
Many people think very highly of this set. I don't quite go that far but at this price it is still quite a good buy. The two late symphonies get performances that are adequate but there are so many accounts of these great works out there that are better. The earlier symphonies sound a little slick to my ears but do have plenty of life and at least some charm. The set is,...

1.0 out of 5 stars short changed
Bought CD for wifes present.When opened on her birthday we found that there were only 4 C.Ds in box not 5 as stated on box. C.D 1 was missing.
As present was opened after the 30 day period we are stuffed on replacement.
Not Happy and will look at HMV in future.

Many people think very highly of this set. I don't quite go that far but at this price it is still quite a good buy. The two late symphonies get performances that are adequate but there are so many accounts of these great works out there that are better. The earlier symphonies sound a little slick to my ears but do have plenty of life and at least some charm. The set is, of course, very well played and recorded. For good accounts of the early symphonies I think you would do better to get Davis or Minkowski. For good accounts of the whole set, Kertesz is hard to beat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Schubert - The Symphonies, 24 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Quite simply looking to extend my listening of this composer - and not disappointed. Not "musical" in terms of knowledge experience or playing so can't really give you a "critique" as such, but recommend this to anyone who just likes listening to good (very) music.
