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!

I already have several recordings of the "Great," played by big modern orchestra. I heard this performance recording on the radio and was thrilled to actually hear the parts as I imagine Schubert would have intended (should he have ever heard it performed.) The chamber-orch group lays out the lines in joyous lightness; I had to add this recording to my library ... it's the only one I "play" nowadays; the other records just keep the shelf upright.

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.
