HD-Vinyls 24/192 (DGG) Franz Schubert – Symphony No. 9 (Giulini)

Don’t be afraid of the slow tempi; Giulini is one of those conductors of genius who can make it work, and sometimes even convince you that it’s better their way, which he does in the first and fourth movements. I agree with other reviewers that he could have brought out more of the parodistic qualities of the second and third movements, but that is small potatoes compared to his attention to musical detail, and the controlled passion in his interpretation. Giulini also had a knack for getting precisely the sound he wanted out of any orchestra, even if they were used to playing differently, and much as I like Solti I prefer the sound Giulini coaxes here from the CSO.
