BEST SCHUBERT 100

$ 9.09 $ 19.49

This 6CD set contains 100 tracks from the most familiar and best-loved works by the Austrian composer Franz Schubert (1797–1828), performed by many of the world’s leading instrumentalists, singers, orchestras and conductors.

CD 1 includes extracts from six of Schubert’s nine symphonies, including the famous ‘Unfinished’ Symphony (No.8) and the ‘Great’ C major Symphony (No.9). Also heard here are parts of the incidental music Schubert wrote for the play Rosamunde that has now become established as a firm concert favourite away from the theatre.

CD 2 covers Schubert’s works for the piano, beginning with the infectiously lively ‘Marche militaire No.1 in D’ and followed by some of his best known short works, including some Moments musicaux and various German Dances and Impromptus. The disc ends with a complete performance of his towering masterpiece for the piano, the Wanderer Fantasy

Schubert effectively established German Lied as a new art form in the 19th century. He was a master of melody and found his perfect medium in his songs. CDs 3 and 4 bring us some of the best-known of Schubert’s songs, including items from his three great song cycles: Die schöne Müllerin, Winterreise and Schwanengesang.

In CD 5 we hear some of the outstanding chamber music that Schubert managed to find time to write during his brief life, beginning with a part of the much-loved Piano Quintet in A known as ‘The Trout’ (‘Die Forelle’) because it includes a set of variations on the tune of one of Schubert’s most familiar songs of the same name.

CD 6 presents extracts from some of Schubert’s many sacred choral works, which include six complete masses as well as settings of other texts such as the Stabat Mater, various Kyries and the delightful ‘Gott ist mein Hirt’ (‘The Lord is my Shepherd’).
