Info for Schubert: Symphonies Nos. 7 & 8

To conclude Philippe Jordan’s first season as Music Director of the Wiener Symphoniker, this August the Orchestra’s eponymous label is releasing a new CD of Schubert’s Symphonies No. 7 ("Unfinished") and No. 8 ("The Great" in C Major), which were recorded in the Wiener Musikverein. Schubert was also a central focus of Jordan’s first season at the Wiener Symphoniker, in which a Schubert cycle brought all the symphonies by this, the most Viennese of composers, to the stage.

In addition, Schubert’s "Unfinished" was featured in Jordan’s international introductory tour in 2014: "The orchestra was superbly deployed, well prepared, on splendid performing form. The conductor was precise, confident, spirited and occasionally hands-on." (Der Standard)

“Jordan steers the music along with a lightly sprung tread.” (Financial Times, UK)
