4.0 out of 5 stars A Classical Classic, 21 Feb 2013
By 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Schubert: The Three Great Symphonies, Nos. 5, 8 & 9 (Audio CD)
I can't quite put my finger on the reason why I don't feel able to give this recording five stars - but I think it's just slightly lifeless. This may be a somewhat harsh opinion, bearing in mind that the recordings date from the early 1980’s when classical music tended to be interpreted with more reverence – perhaps simply an absence of ‘wow factor’.

Don’t, however, let that comment deter you – these are, without doubt, excellent performances of great music and are right up at the top of the available recordings for these three Schubert works.

As far as the recording quality is concerned, I have no complaints. The CD cover states the recording is ‘DDD’ – which surprised me as I was expecting a digital remaster. This is a great value double CD which will undoubtedly give much listening pleasure.
