Recorded live at the Royal Festival Hall in October 2015, this new release continues the Philharmonia Orchestra’s celebrated series of live recordings on Signum, led in this performance by their ‘Honorary Conductor for Life’ Christoph von Dohnányi.
Recorded as part of the orchestra’s 70th anniversary season, this performance captures the grandeur and intensity of Schubert’s final and greatest symphony.
BBC Music MagazineOctober 2016
this performance…goes for broke and succeeds, to the evident rapture of the audience. The Philharmonia is up to all Dohnányi’s and Schubert’s steep demands, and I was left with a feeling of exhausted exhilaration.

It opens with a freshness and dignity, un-rushed but directional, from which delicious colours and nuances seamlessly emerge. The Andante adds mellifluous intimacy, the Scherzo a boisterous joy, and in the finale a resolute finesse epitomises the spritely, judicious precision of Dohnányi’s lively reading.
