Editorial Reviews

I am selling a large collection of 78 records I acquired many years ago from a now defunct rural Mississippi radio station. This is on the Decca Label 23656 recorded in 1946. Recorded by Andrew Sisters & Eddie Heywood. It features "Them that has - gets" on one side and "Rumors are flying" on the other side.

Even though Claudio Abbado is here conducting the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, the weight of Schubert's masterpiece "Great" C Major Symphony is grand indeed. This ensemble is outstandingly sharp, and the tempo of each of the four movements is well-chosen. The usual excellent DG engineers have provided a very clear, well-balanced recording. Schubert finally came up with a highly original Symphony, after being in the shadow of his fore-runners Haydn and Mozart. The spectre of his contemporary Beethoven looms large on most of his earlier symphonies, but he broke completely free at last, late in his tragically short life. His so-called "Unfinished" Symphony (numbered 8), also successfully rises as a Schubert original, and too is a masterpiece. It should be noted that textual amendments for the Ninth are included on this CD, which notably adds four extra bars to the Scherzo, originally cut by Brahms in his early edition of this work. Finally, an enjoyable Rosamunde Overture is included as a generous coupling, rounding out this CD to 72 minutes of pure Franz Schubert. There are many recordings of his last Symphony available, but in my opinion few match this excellent one on Deutsche Grammophon. Highly recommended!

Abbado's ninth takes 61:43 here, including repeats usually omitted and previous deletions from Schubert's original manuscript. As a result, one hears what sounds like a different symphony fairly often, especially in the final two movements. In the third movement a five note passage is inserted and tiny
repeats occur throughout. Since the tempi are fairly brisk //Szell, Haitink, and Jochum (all of whom observe few repeats), I would guess that the edited material and "extra" repeats increase the playing time about by 12-14 minutes. As an analogy, one might consider the 5-6 minute difference
in the "abbreviated" version of the Eb Trio -still performed more often- and the "unabbreviated"
version which I now consider indispensable (see my review of he Abegg Trio version).
Abbado's ninth is a summit in his complete set which is very good-especially for #s 1-3 and 6- but mixed (see my reviews). The COE is superb-one does not miss a larger orchestra and can also hear more detail.Tempi sound reasonable and nothing drags. Abbado sounds expecially inspired throughout, and especially in the final two movements. I find a bit more delicacy and poetry in Jochum's version, especially in the Andante, and would not dismiss the other versions mentioned + Kubelik's live version with its stupendous final movements. Mackerras's repeat laden version sounds quite
compelling and original in an attractive way that I have not yet analyzed satisfactorily.
Abbado's Rosamunde Overture is also excellent. Still unavailable commercially alas is the great Haitink/RCOA ninth -with his complete Rosamunde on Philips (an 80 minute cd-not the version also with the excerpted Rosamunde -one ca also find it in the bargain "Essential Schubert" 5 cd set (see my review) , it is a career peak for him.

Format: Audio CD
The disc, well recorded in 1987, is a very good performance of both the symphony and the overture. The symphony makes use of corrections made by studying the manuscript scores specially for this set of recordings. Only the first three symphonies had previously been checked in this way. In reality the differences are relatively small and concern various accenting marks and a few inserted bars. The most interesting potentially is the time signature for the slow movement which Schubert had marked as 2/2 time rather than the printed 4/4 time. This implies a faster pace with two bats per bar rather than four. However, these days, this movement is generally kept on the move at a proper andante pace so perhaps more of a reminder for conductors to keep moving!

This performance certainly does keep moving without being excessive. The string playing of the orchestra is a delight with much delicate filigree work in the last movement particularly. The chamber orchestra proportions allows the trumpet and trombone contributions to cut through satisfyingly rather than being heavy and domineering. The outer movements have plenty of 'bounce' and the scherzo is incisive. The slow movement flows well in duple time as mentioned above.

The whole performance is very rewarding as is the overture. The overture started life for another work, but was later recycled with a new name as we know it today. In this performance it shares the same performing characteristics of the symphony.

I would suggest that this very fine disc is deserving of serious consideration from all potential purchasers therefore. A would also suggest that Immerseel's equally excellent performance on period instruments is an alternative very strong competitor.
