SCHUBERT Symphony No. 6, Rosamunde

“with the famous tune of Entr’acte No. 3 played with warmth and affection, the two ballets given perfect energy and tempi and plenty of atmospheric dramas elsewhere I can find nothing to complain is Thomas Dausgaard who brings us closer to the earthy reality of an orchestra in something approaching a theatre setting.” --MusicWeb International, 17th September 2013

“internal balance within the orchestra is dexterously managed by Thomas Dausgaard. And his pacing of the opening Adagio instils confidence, the line shaped by phrases stretched and contracted, dynamics thoughtfully graded, the interpretation of the whole work thoughtfully considered.” --Gramophone Magazine, October 2013

Swedish Chamber Orchestra, Thomas Dausgaard

Symphony No. 6 was composed by a 20-year-old Schubert who wished to pay tribute to one of his heroes at the time: Rossini.

This is the second disc in an on-going cycle of Schubert’s symphonies with the SCO and Thomas Dausgaard, described by BBC Music Magazine described as ‘an excitingly combative, and ultimately very plausible new look at Schubert.’
