If you are into Schubert, you need this CD. It's a great deal-- Wonderful recordings of 2 full symphonies at a low price. If you are a collector or just want to sample a taste of Schubert, starting with these 'complete version' symphonies is a great idea!!

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By John J. Puccio TOP 1000 REVIEWER on April 4, 2013
Format: Audio CD
The two most-salient features of this reissued coupling are (1) that Sir Charles Mackerras conducts both the Fifth Symphony and Eighth Symphony of Franz Schubert (1797-1828) using a period-instruments band, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, and (2) he conducts the completed version of the Eighth using an educated reconstruction by Brian Newbould. Those considerations and the fact that Virgin now offer the album at a budget price make it something worth looking into.

Purists beware: The version of Schubert's "Unfinished" Eighth Symphony (begun in 1822) Mackerras chose to record is one completed by composer, conductor, lecturer, pianist, critic, and Schubert scholar Brian Newbould. It uses a reconstructed third movement and the Entr'acte Music No. 1 from Schubert's Rosamunde for the concluding Allegro.
