Only allotted 31 years of life, Franz Schubert nevertheless proved to be one of the most prolific (he wrote almost 1,000 works) and revered composers of the Romantic era.

5.0 out of 5 stars Schubert Smorgasbord October 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Mostly known for his "Unfinished" Symphony, Schubert produced a bounty of compositions leading to wonder and grandeur. The selections on this Ultimate collection will fill anybody's environment with joy. A string quartet by the Quartetto Italiano, "Death and the Maiden", three symphonies performed by the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra under Istvan Kertesz and the Concertgebouw Orchestra's Bernard Haitink make this an incredible deal. Clifford Curzon plays at the piano for a whole disc, Piano Sonato in D major and Impromptus. Decca went all-out to produce this remastered 5-CD set!

5.0 out of 5 stars The title is mostly accurate December 13, 2012
Format:Audio CD
in re the compositions here being legitimately essential. Perhaps the Symphony #5 and the Quartettsatz do not qualify as "essential" Schubert, but the other works do. If "essential" also refers to the quality of individual performances, then the following performances definitely qualify: the Haitink/RCOA complete Rosamunde; the Curzon sonata in D, D850; the
Menahem Pressler/Beaux Arts Trout Quintet; and the Quartetto Italian "Death and the Maiden" quartet. I have reviewed
each of these four performances here . All received five stars and are desert island performances also (see my reviews). The Schubert cello quartet is at least one of his most essential works, but I prefer versions by the Amadeus, Lindsay, and Emerson Quartets. The ninth symphony is also essential and the VPO under Istvan Kertesz play it very well-it is a keeper, but
here I prefer versions by Szell/Sony, Kubelik/Audite, Jochum/BRSO (my favorite) and Abbado/COE.
For at least the four essential essentials (D797, 810, 850, and 667), this cd is a great bargain, however. At the very
least, one will obtain five discs of great music in very good performances
