Now Schubert’s "Great" C major Symphony No. 8 continous our Kubelik cycle on 180g vinyl. The live-recording from the Herkules-Hall in Munich is from 27 March 1969.
Schubert’s Symphony No. 8 is not a farewell work in which the composer’s approaching end is announced; on the contrary, it is a symphony full of youthful freshness and determination pointing ahead into the future. It is Schubert’s breakthrough to an independent symphonic concept beyond Beethoven’s charged drama and monumentality.
The five prize-winning recordings from our Kubelik series with Mahler Symphonies are also live-recordings from the 70s and 80s:
No. 1, No. 3, No. 5, No. 6 and No. 7.
All recordings are available as double LPs in 180g virgin vinyl.
