Notes and Editorial Reviews

Sir Roger Norrington's approach to adapting historical performance practice for a modern symphony orchestra fruitful has yielded some excellent results. His recordings of the Symphonies Nos. 4 and 5 (Hänssler Classic / SWR music 93.288) were the beginning of Norrington's recorded investigation of the pre-romantic Schubert. His 8th Symphony, the "Unfinished", is undoubtedly his most popular symphony, and among his most popular works, and an essential work of the standard repertory. Roger Norrington and his orchestra "speak" this music in a natural way and impresses us just by avoiding excess. - Hänssler Classic Sir Roger Norrington's approach to adapting historical performance practice for a modern symphony orchestra fruitful has yielded some excellent results.
