SCHUBERT 8 Symphonien Abbado 4236512

. . . outstanding . . .

. . . a compelling reading in which the Italian conductor simply allows the music to speak for itself . . . [Abbado] just about has the perfect finish of the "Unfinished" . . . Both tempi and dynamics are beautifully handled. Abbado's ability to unravel the emotional turmoil that underpins this work is incomparable.
