Schubert: Symphony No. 8 / Zinman
After their acclaimed recording of the complete Beethoven symphonies in a new musical guise, a highly-regarded cycle of Richard Strauss's tone poems, the complete Mahler symphonies and a number of other musical projects with which they attracted widespread attention, David Zinman and the Tonhalle Orchestra Zurich now devote themselves to the symphonies of Franz Schubert. David Zinman has made numerous recordings with the Tonhalle Orchestra. The complete Beethoven Symphonies on the Arte Nova label have sold almost 1,000,000 copies and gained him the German Record Critics’ Prize in 1999. A box of seven CDs featuring the symphonic works of Richard Strauss were released on Arte Nova. In the 2003/04 season David Zinman recorded all the Schumann symphonies and Beethoven overtures. Following this came the complete Beethoven piano concertos, the violin concerto, and the triple concerto. In November 2010 the 10th and final symphony of Mahler was released to complete the Mahler cycle recorded with David Zinman and the Tonhalle Orchestra over a period of six years.
