SCHUBERT/HAYDN SYMPHONY NO.9 - HAYDN: SYMPHONY NO. 88 Limited 180gram Vinyl 2LP Set

Overview:
Furtwangler couples two justly famous studio performances. The Schubert retains its own unique charisma, with surprisingly dynamic sound, superb playing and a mastery of musical transition that is all the more remarkable for accommodating some alarming interpretative extremes – in the first movement’s accelerating shift from Andante to Allegro ma non troppo, for example. The Berlin Philharmonic take all this in their stride, albeit through a particularly compelling route: mountainous and spacious, with songful phrasing and due respect for the work’s ‘late’ provenance.
As to the fill-up, this particular recording of Haydn’s Symphony No. 88 is a regular ‘test’ case for generalized comparisons between Furtwangler and Toscanini, most specifically the maestro’s drily recorded, keenly inflected and ruthlessly brilliant of the same symphony. The Largo is a popular point of reference, with Toscanini broad and darkly Beethovenian, and Furtwangler providing a mobile, humble, almost pious alternative. True, the latter’s performance has its own moments of tension (especially in the opening Adagio), but generally speaking, it remains a genial and relatively unmannered reading.
