Schubert - Early Symphonies and Stage Music [Double Album] (2019)

Schubert

Copenhagen Philharmonic Orchestra

Lawrence Foster

By presenting Schubert’s first three symphonies and a selection of stage music, this album showcases a less-known, but fascinating part of the composer’s oeuvre. His extraordinary achievements in the fields of Lieder and string quartet composition tend to overshadow his orchestral output, and his symphonic contributions have sometimes been viewed as marginal in comparison to Beethoven’s. However, judged on their own merits, these works display a high level of sophistication indeed. The repertoire featured on this release shows Schubert’s symphonic development, from the first two symphonies influenced by Mozart & Haydn to the masterful Third, in which his compositional voice is clearly perceivable. These three symphonies, all composed when Schubert was still a teenager, are complemented by works related to the stage. While the Overture in Italian Style in D major highlights Schubert’s fascination for Rossini, the Incidental Music to Rosamunde contains some of the composer’s most appealing melodies. These orchestral works are performed by the Copenhagen Phil under the baton of Lawrence Foster, who has a vast PENTATONE discography.
