Schubert: The "Great" C Major Symphony, D. 944 - Claudio Abbado - Orchestra Mozart on 180g 2LP + Download

A rare new vinyl release conducted by Claudio Abbado in 2011, a music legend still missed by many in the concert hall and the studio. After Abbado’s first performance of the work in Den Haag in 1966, he returned again and again to Schubert’s “Great” C Major Symphony. 25 years after his first recording with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, Abbado's new interpretation of this symphony with Orchestra Mozart reveals a wealth of new details, making it his definitive take on the work!

"....rusticity and irresistible energy...what his performance conveys most powerfully is the sense of a symphony bursting at its classical seams and pushing its expressive language as far as it will go." - Andrew Clements, The Guardian 2015

"...[Abbado's approach of viewing a well-known score with a fresh eye] is exemplified here in the acute clarity of detail and inflection that Abbado elicits from the orchestra, as well as the sophistication of the phrasing and the judicious pacing that seems precisely to nail the allegro ma non troppo marking of the long first movement and the healthy walking tempo of the second movement's andante con moto. An ear‑opening performance." - Geoffrey Norris, The Daily Telegraph 2015
