Format:MP3 Music
This fine bargain edition of live recordings of the complete Schubert symphonies uses the new numbering now that it has been proved that the supposedly lost Gmunden-Gastein symphony is the same as the "Great", D.944, formerly called the Ninth but now known as Schubert's Eighth and last symphony; thus, correspondingly, the "Unfinished" is now the Seventh.

These are by and large tenser and tauter interpretations than the genial, relaxed manner typified by many previous, celebrated interpreters. At times Maazel pushes hard and thus does not quite conjure the wit and charm that Beecham brought to his Schubert, but, these are still beautifully played performances, demonstrating that Maazel is a deft, alert, flexible Schubertian. The woodwind and horns are especially grateful on the ear; the recording acoustic is slightly "fat" and boomy but warm, with barely a sound from the audience and all sections of the orchestra very well balanced.

The early symphonies are not necessarily masterpieces and contain nothing especially memorable. Their free-flowing melodies occasionally flirt with banality but Maazel brings out their wit, tunefulness and vivacity, nicely judging the triple-time dance rhythms which alternate with more dramatic passages and conjuring up the bitter-sweet melancholy so typical of Schubert's idiom. The youthful dynamism of the Allegro vivace finale to the First Symphony carries over to the opening movement of the Second, making me wonder if Mendelssohn was familiar with it. There is kind of domestic cosiness to the Andante, then the rustic Menuetto and Trio and Presto vivace fourth movement are despatched with zest and energy.
