|Claudio Abbado Schubert: The "Great" C major Symphony Limited Vinyl LP
The rare new album conducted by Maestro Abbado is now avalible on LP. Schubert remained one of Abbado’s favourite composers throughout his life and since his first performance in Den Haag in 1966 he returned again and again to the ‘Great’ C Major Symphony. This very special album combines live performances with Abbado’s beloved Orchestra Mozart, recorded in September 2011. Twenty-five years after his first recording with the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, Abbado's new interpretation of this symphony reveals a wealth of new details, making it his definitive take on the work. Claudio Abbado and Martha Argerich's interpretation of Mozart’s Piano Concertos No. 20 and No. 25 was DG’s best-selling core album in 2014, and the Maestro’s Bruckner 9 on DG is nominated for a prestigious BBC Music Magazine Award 2015.
