About

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.

Reviews

Christoph von Dohnányi has usually struck me as a restrained conductor, but this performance, from the Royal Festival Hall a year ago, goes for broke and succeed, 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.  Michael Tanner (Orchestral Choice)
