As much as I like the rough, unfettered vitality of Knappertsbusch's live Great C major, this version by Sinopoli is worthy to stand alongside it and of course the value of this recording is increased by the coupling of an equally fine "Unfinished".

These are grand, large-scale performances but there is nothing inflated or bombastic about them because they are so balanced and measured, Sinopoli's timings are in fact almost identical to those of Maazel in his last, successful survey of the Schubert symphonies on BR Klassik and not wayward in any sense. Both these symphonies are world' s apart from the intense, spotlit vignettes of the Lieder or the cyclical, rhapsodic invention of the chamber music and as such are all of a piece as conceptions and their unity is enhanced by superb DG sound, allowing all the instrumental lines to emerge cleanly in the resonant acoustic of the Lucaskirche without prominence to any one line and by the sheer virtuosity of the Dresden Staatskapelle.

However, Sinopoli deliberately beefs up the timpani to emphasise the sense of brooding menace in the opening of D759 and is unafraid to make explicit gestures, such as his marked pauses to underline the chordal outbursts halfway through that movement. The Andante works in direct contrast to the Allegro, being first wistful, the determined, then noble, before the beautifully toned solo clarinet begins its winding discourse culminating in a peroration of stern resolve, strengthened by boldly blaring brass.

Sinopoli presents Schuberts Symphonies in Wagnerian grandeur yet at the same time keeps the grace and refinement of the German Classicism. Unfinished Symphony is gloriously vivid and warmly epressive.

Some years back I owned this recording on cassette and couldn't find the CD anywhere, but eventually tracked it down on Amazon. Deutsche Grammaphon is an excellent label and the sound quality is, as expected, first class. I love Schubert's music generally so this recording is a very welcome addition to my classical collection and will be played a lot.
