There have been many great recordings of Schubert's Eighth and Ninth symphonies -- one thinks immediately of the awe-inspiring Furtw?ngler, the heartwarming Walter, and the hard-driving Toscanini -- and there have been some great recordings of Schubert's six earlier symphonies -- one thinks immediately of the glorious B?hm, the luminous Kleiber, and the fabulous Abbado -- but while this set of all eight symphonies -- Schubert never did more than sketch a seventh -- with Frans Br?ggen conducting the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century may not match the greatest recordings of the greatest works, it often comes very, very close. Br?ggen may have first made his mark as an incredibly talented recorder player, but by the time he made these recordings in the early '90s, he had long since proved himself as a highly skillful conductor, and he is never less than completely in control of the music. Better yet, Br?ggen was always a deeply understanding interpreter and his performances here have all the requisite Schubertian qualities of tender intimacy, intense lyricism, extreme drama, and unrelenting energy. But even better, the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century is more than merely the superb early instrument ensemble Br?ggen is directing; it is the superb ensemble of superlative individuals that has as much to say about the music as the conductor. Either as soloists or as a unit, the Orchestra's phrasing, molding, and shaping are cogent, creative, and compelling -- and entirely its own. While there will always be room on the shelf for Furtw?ngler, Walter, and Toscanini, not to mention B?hm, Kleiber, and Abbado, this set will be mandatory listening for anyone who loves Schubert's symphonies, especially in Philips' crisp and colorful sound.
