“The orchestra’s natural warmth of expression and big sound seem to mesh perfectly with [Muti’s] rhythmic discipline and energetic approach. The result is an Unfinished whose first movement has all of the necessary proto-Brucknerian weight but also plenty of anguish and excited, while the Andante con moto for once really is ‘con moto’.” — Classics Today

Riccardo Muti leads the Vienna Philharmonic in two of Schubert’s symphonies — the well-loved, unfinished Eighth and the lesser-known First. Recorded in 1990.
