Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Symphonies Nos. 8 & 9 (Audio CD)
Josef Krips'Schubert 8 and 9 was justly awarded a Penguin Guide Rosette,and whilst I may niggle and carp regarding some of that book's reviews(that's part of the enjoyment), they've got it absolutely right here.As much as I love Schubert,I've never been all that fond of the symphonies,barring the last two,where I believe he had really mastered both the form and his own intent,becoming his own man.Influenced,yes,but with his own vision.
Here we have a truly great example of orchestras,conductor,composer,and recording coming together to give us a little piece of art.
Miss this at your peril,and thanks to Australian Eminence for making this available again.They seem to be reading my wish list,as this is not the first of their recordings to fill a gap in my all time desires...
