Schubert: Symphonies 2 & 3

B'Rock Orchestra
René Jacobs, conductor


A SYMPHONIC PAIR FULL OF CONTRASTS

Multiple prize-winning conductor René Jacobs and the B’Rock Orchestra continue their Schubert cycle on PENTATONE with a recording of the composer’s Second and Third Symphony. Jacobs approaches these pieces as a symphonic pair revealing contrasting aspects of Schubert’s personality and compositional approach; the former being serious, ambitious, aiming to “outdo” Beethoven, while the latter is deliberately un-heroic: light, lyrical, and full of Italianizing elements. Interestingly, Jacobs discerns a comparable tandem approach in Schubert’s Fourth and Fifth Symphonies, which will form the next episode of this recording project. The players of the B’Rock Orchestra present these works on period instruments, transparent, but full of fire.

Comment by Dissonance - September 10, 2020 (1 of 1)

What’s the matter with PENTATONE? Most of its forthcoming recordings will be standard CDs only, not SA-CDs. The greatest disappointments for me are PTC 5186850 (Brahms: Symphony No. 1 & Tragic Overture / Gewandhausorchester Leipzig & Herbert Blomstedt) and especially PTC 5186853 (Handel: Messiah / Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin & Justin Doyle).
