 Peter Schreier as conductor May 30, 2012 By M. Gielen (den Bosch, Noord Brabant) See All My Reviews "As not being used to the name Peter Schreier as conductor I was very curious to hear how this great singer would interpret Schuberts instrumental masterpieces, such as the symphony nr 5 and 8 .
He really presents a good performance.
Symphony 8 is in a quite emotional vein,he reveals the beauty and drama in this great masterpiece.
the lyrocism in 5 is very convincing and beautifully shaped.
A fine cd."
