Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Despite being recorded as long as 1958, this classic account of one of Schubert's most loved compositions needs no technical intervention beyond a little hiss reduction to emerge as warm and seductive as ever. At super bargain price, this Alto disc begs to belong in your collection, especially when yoked with four Viennes Dances so joyfully and idiomatically played by the revered bandmaster Willi Boskovsky at the head of both ensembles; it is as if one hears a constant smile in their tone. As a bonus, we hear the Quartettsatz played by the celebrated Tokyo Quartet in a performance which is both highly dramatic and intensely lyrical.

This is from 1958, so don't expect great acoustics, because there is an odd sound that should be expected from the technology of the time.The best part are the Dances. Schubert isn't as well known for his dances as the Strauss family, but I find I prefer Schubert and this recording is both intimate and exciting. Many recordings of various dances done by small groups and orchestras sound more like a student orchestration homework project., this recording sounds as if Schubert wrote them for strings instead of the piano.
