A beautiful performance
I love this symphony and have heard many performances of it. The Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra is an orchestra of top quality, and Andreas Delfs is an inspired conductor. This live concert performance of Schubert's Unfinished Symphony is very beautiful. At the very end there is something I have never heard before and have no explanation for: a solo flute holds the last note for a couple of seconds after the rest of the orchestra has stopped. Is this a blemish? I don't know. Be that as it may, I strongly recommend this as a performance which gives me much pleasure.
Live Recording is not for Classical Music
Schubert's unfinished symphony is just beautiful and I believe the musicians here delivered an adequate performance (but the reviewer below points out a possible fault). However, live recording of classical music does not work for me. One can distinctly hear (loud) noise from the audience at several places during the performance, and this takes from the enjoyment of the music. The only acceptable surrogate for appreciating classical music in person is quality studio recording.
Well, Having played this particular piece myself, I would have to say, Bravo. This was preformed extrodinary, and was very intense. The exposed parts were right on, no complaints!
