What people are saying
This is a safe, middle-of-the-road account of Schubert's masterpiece and all the better for it. The music is allowed to unfold seemingly without effort, but always with dramatic focus." - Classic FM, May 2016
"The care taken by Dohnanyi over the quieter sections is very impressive: a wonderful hush enhances the magical ending of the exposition. There is no doubt that Christoph von Dohnanyi has great sympathy for and understanding of Schubert." - Classical Source, June 2016
"Captures the grandeur and intensity of the composer's final and greatest symphony." - The Northern Echo, June 2016
