    I have Barenboim's reading of Schubert's 9th. While it's melodically very good, the symphony hasn't 'grabbed' me that much, I actually think some of his earlier ones (for eg. no. 3 & 4) to be more dynamic than the 9th. Maybe it's Barenboim's reading? Does anyone own the Sir Colin Davis reading? How is it?

    I listen to this perhaps three times a year. Schubert is not in my top 10.

    I also enjoy Barenboim's versions of Schubert and Beethoven but don't love any. He's sort of a Bohm-lite in my opinion. I've never heard the Davis and couldn't find it on Youtube just now. I did find it on Amazon but the sound clips are short and I'm hardly in the market for another version, at this time. I'd be interested to hear your take if you get your hands on it.

    An interesting and occasionally ingenious essay by Ian Bostridge about the end of Winterreise:

    http://www.theguardian.com/books/201...ts-winterreise

    Bostridge has also published a 500-page book about the song cycle that I intend to read before too long: http://www.amazon.com/Schuberts-Wint.../dp/030796163X

    Thanks, it's rare to see such an imagnative response to a piece of music. I shall certainly read the book.

    If anything approaches his Quintet in C, then, well, the Octet would be that thing.


    Agreed?

    These days I have been listening to the piano sonatas from these new recordings by Daniel Barenboim



    and I am pleasantly surprised for what I've heard so far.
    It's growing little by little inside me.
    Maybe this CD set could be one of the big surprises of 2015?

    Hello,

    I am new here =)

    Symphony No. 9 in C, D. 944 'Great' is one of my favorite, could some one point me to "similar" works?

    Welcome to the madhouse. For a symphony that is from the same timeframe and a not too-dissimilar soundworld you might want to try the 3rd symphony of Louis Spohr, quite a dramatic work in places despite being only about half the length of Schubert's more 'widescreen' 9th.

    Welcome Schubert to the world of Lord Lance. He has dubbed you now as Schubeart.
