Minneapolis Symphony, Skrowaczewski

Comments

Equivalent release: Mercury MG-50272 (mono).

with original Mercury inner sleeve.

RFR pressing: although this is NOT the earliest copy, it still has nice sound with fine stereophonics and presence.

A famous confusing note - this album actually contains Symphony No.8 (“The Great” / “La Grande”), D. 944. Until 1951, “The Great” was numbered No.7 and “Unfinished” was No.8. However in 1951, they were renumber as E major (D.729) No.7, “Unfinished” No.8 and “The Great” No.9. Then in 1978, E major was omitted again, then “Unfinished” became No.7, and “The Great” No.8.

This album, although recorded in 1961, denotes “The Great” as No.7.

Personal Impression (and brief notes)

One of the most famous Schubert's symphonies, conducted by young Skrowaczewski.

Strictly Personal Rating (to what extent I could enjoy this album)

7 out of 10
