Nikolaus Harnoncourt once said, "Schubert is the composer who is closest to my heart" - and in
this edition, Harnoncourt and the Berliner Philharmoniker present a brilliant and multifaced
portrait of the composer. It os course includes Schubert's symphonies - from the too little-known
early works to the "Unfinished" and the "Great" C major Symphony. With Schubert's final two
masses, central works of Romantic sacred music are also represented, plus there is a first-class
discovery with the opera Alfonso und Estrella.
