In 2015, our Schubert Edition with the Berliner Philharmoniker and Nikolaus Harnoncourt received high praise from critics all over the world. The BBC Music Magazine celebrated the recordings as a “feast of Schubert”, and in France they were awarded the prestigious Diapason d’Or. The edition is now being released in a budget version. It presents the composer’s eight symphonies on five CDs/SACDs which can be played on any CD/SACD player. The edition includes a top-quality slipcase and a comprehensive booklet. The qualities of the performances which were recorded between 2003 and 2006 are also revealed in the CD/SACD edition. This Schubert is colourful and dramatic – and represents a unique synthesis in which the famous sound of the Berliner Philharmoniker is as evident as Nikolaus Harnoncourt’s familiarity with the transparency and sound speech of historical performance practice.
