My top Schubert choices for the full set of symphonies are those conducted by Franz Bruggen and Jos van Immerseel. If I get to pick and choose individual performances, however, then this release by Bruno Weil and The Classical Band is a prime option when it comes to the Numbers 5 and 6. Both of them, plus Number 3, are covered by Thomas Beecham in his classic renditions, recordings that show up on just about every list of recommended discs, mine included. For original instruments versions of this pair, however, it's hard to beat the performances on this disc. It certainly claws to the top of the heap to stand beside the aforementioned Bruggen and Immerseel. Weil and The Classical Band have recorded the Numbers 8 and 9 to even better effect; it's a shame they've never completed the job with the first four of Schubert's symphonies. Oh, what might have been....

Ingratiating music, beautifully played, and the recording does full justice to the wind-textures, in the Fifth especially, that make it such a charmer. The Classical Band is a period-instrument group, and the scale of their performance seems just right for the music. David Zinman's account, well recorded on RCA, doesn't over-inflate the music, but Weil brings an airier feel to these pieces. One of the amazing questions that you'll be left to ponder is how Schubert got from these relatively light-weight, if very well made, pieces, to the expressive depths of his later work. The Fifth, from 1816, inhabits Mozart's sound world, and the heavier Sixth (1818) -- with brass as well as woodwind -- seems to gesture towards Beethoven's Seventh in the Scherzo, but it too settles for charm in its dancing finale. You won't find better accounts, on this scale, of these appealing pieces.
