If I had to pick a single favorite piece of chamber music, I would pick Schubert's quintet with two cellos. Just amazing piece. I don't have a great audiophile recording unfortunately. I like the Hollywood's performance (and a version with Heifetz getting top billing isn't bad either), and rostropovich is good, but not up to the hype. Still waiting for a great recording. I also love the piano trios, especially the spooky second movement of op 100 (great performance by casals & co, but sound is terrible). Beaux arts is quite good.

I hate to call for the powers of the holy thread resurrection, but I have been looking for some Schubert piano 4 hands recordings. Does anyone have a good recommendation? Thanks.

Hi All,

It's been sometime since we had an update to this thread. I've been listening to Schubert's Symphonies, and very much like them all.

I have the box set conducted by Zender, and have recently ordered the set by Marriner. Any thoughts on other sets to consider?

Thanks,

You can get the Harnoncourt/Concertgebouw set in a cheap box these days. The Abbado/Chamber Orchestra of Europe is also excellent.

The Marriner set is useful since it has many hard to find odds/ends.
I am big Schubert fan and have many sets, I agree with LWD that the set to beat is Abbado/COE/DG

Unfortuantely still sells for full price, but it may be best thing ever recorded by Abbado.........a great great set.

Not a set, but don't miss Furtwangler's account of the 9th. It's as far from historically informed as you can get, but the intensity is inspiring. There's more than one, but the M&A disk with the 8th and 9th is essential listening.

The only music by Schubert I know is his "Symphony no. 8 in B Minor"... The unfinished. So from what I've heard from him, I've loved.

My classical collection is non-existant and subsequently shameful D:

I disagree that it's the best thing ever recorded by Abbado... IMHO he rushes far too often in his Schubert. I think his Schubert is great but Wand's and Karajan's cycle still edges him out. For a good cheap option Karajan is still unbeatable.

Recently I've been investigating Schubert's piano sonatas, beyond the few single discs I own. I was very disappointed by Schiff's set, but now have a satisfactory resource in Brendel's 70s set (which includes a couple of the earlier sonatas from 80s performances), plus Tirimo's complete cycle which includes movements completed by the performer. (Scholars seem to agree that works where only the recapitulation of a movement was left to be written were essentially complete as far as the composer was concerned.)

Anyway, I have an obscure question - has anyone had a chance to listen to any completed version of the D840 sonata in C, AKA "Reliquie"? I'm not satisfied with Tirimo's solutions, and am wary of Badura-Skoda's early keyboards. Apparently Bart Berman also recorded Badura-Skoda's completion - possibly on a modern piano - but this is out of print and very expensive.

Britten-Richter and Kissin-Levine.

Does anyone have a view on the best Schubert String Quintet release of late (Takacs, Pavel Haas et al)?  Do you find it preferable to, say, the Hagen/Schiff DG version?
