David Zinman and the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich have recorded a subtle but spectacular album of Schubert’s Symphonies Nos. 5 & 6. This album is so beautiful, elegent and serene that I’ve left it on repeat in my car stereo for over a month, enjoying the listening experience far too much to properly review it. Strangely, I wasn’t immediately captivated by the album. Yet it quickly grew from pretty background music to a comforting presence and is now, in my view, a gorgeous, beloved recording.
