Franz Schubert (1797-1828)

Although he died at the early age of 31, Schubert was tremendously prolific. He wrote some 600 Lieder, nine symphonies, liturgical music, operas, some incidental music, and a large body of chamber and solo piano music. Appreciation of his music during his lifetime was limited, but interest in Schubert's work increased dramatically in the decades following his death. Franz Liszt, Robert Schumann and Felix Mendelssohn, among others, discovered and championed his works in the 19th Century. Today, Schubert is admired as one of the leading exponents of the Romantic era in music and he remains one of the most frequently performed composers.

Robert Matthew Walker writes in International Record Review for February 2009:
Fisty was a throughly dependable musician who possessed a fabulous technique. He never gave a bad performance and this is a good one - especially the climax to the first movement, which is very poweful. His tempos in the secoond movement are a little swift, and while there is nothing exceptional in his performance, it is a fine example of the work of a greatly admired conductor.

Bob Briggs at Music Web International writes:
With excellent playing from the National Symphony Orchestra (led at this time by the great David McCallum) this performance is dramatic - this is a dramatic Symphony but too often we hear the two movements played at almost identical tempi which takes all sense of tension and excitement from it.

Robert Cowen writes in Gramophone for December 2008:
I was grateful to discover Anatole Fistoulari's 1944 Unfinished with the National Philharmonic, a fresh and dramatic reading.

" The excellence of the performance is matched by that of the recording; it manages to be very clean and forward, without deterioration towards the end of the inevitably rather long sides. An unreservedly good recording ... I believe that few listeners will have any reasonable cause for disappointment with this one." M.M. writing in the Gramophone October 1952

"In its day this was regarded as one of the most reliable versions of the Great C major Symphony and rehearing this performance after a gap of many years one can understand why it enjoyed its reputation. The performance is admirably unfussy and unmannered (save for one detail) and combines the lyrical sweetness and architectural strength for which this masterpiece calls. The authors of The Record Guide spoke of it as "a very worthy performance, magnificently recorded", but did complain that "Krips commits the fashionable error of broadening the tempo in the coda of the first movement", which they found an unnecessary vulgarism. It is a reservation that I would strongly underline, as for some listeners, it would be enough to rule the disc out of court. The tempo of the slow movement is brisk and business-like without ever being over-drilled. Everything is well held-together without in any way diminishing the lyricism of the movement. Krips omits the repeats in the Scherzo which will also trouble some collectors but one must concede that the playing of the Dutch woodwind is quite magnificent in the Trio; indeed it is beautifully eloquent throughout." R.L. writing in The Gramophone July 1974

"Boult's orchestra was in the virtuoso league...The precision is wondrous to hear...You will find yourself noticing things you have never heard before..." Rob Barnett at Classical Music on the Web

Robert Cowen writes in Gramophone for December 2008:
I was happy to encounter Beulah's expert transfer/remastering of Sir Adrian Boult's first recording of Schubert's Ninth, a brilliantly executed performance (BBCSO), swift and breezy, and, as almost always with Boult, acutely structure-conscious.

Bob Briggs at Music Web International writes:
Boult's 1934 Great C major has long been a favourite of mine and it's good to see it available once again and in very good sound. Although Boult recorded this work towards the end of his life, with the London Philharmonic, this performance has a freshness and sparkle - these things are not missing from his later performance, rather this is a younger man's view of a towering masterpiece.

Robert Matthew Walker writes in International Record Review for February 2009:
The first thing that strikes the listener is the fine quality of the sound and the silent surfaces for a 75 year old recording. In addition the orchestral balance is excellent, as is the "spread" of the orchestral layout - it sounds as though it could almost come from twenty years later. Boult delivers a truly supurb performance: if this does not convince those who never heard him as to his greatness as a conductor, then nothing will. His control of long paragraphs is faultess and pefectly paced; his lead into the faster first movement coda is magnificently timed and controlled. This is marvellous conducting, and no mistake.
