Here is an interesting release of Schubert’s first four symphonies, recorded two decades ago. The great Hungarian violinist and conductor, Sandor Végh, recorded these works with the Camerata Salzburg (then called the Camerata Academica of the Mozarteum Salzburg), but they were not released as CDs. Capriccio did issue the Végh/Camerata Symphonies 5, 6, 7, and 9, apparently recorded in 1995. To complete the set, and to promote the heritage of Végh, the Budapest Music Center has now issued these performances, made in Köln the year before Végh’s death in 1997.

Has it been worth the wait? Most certainly. These are lovingly performed versions of four appealing symphonies. Végh understands the singing line of Schubert’s early symphonies, but also that these works pack lots of excitement. My only hesitation concerns slow tempi for some movements. But what I call pokey, others may regard as spacious or leisurely. Végh keeps the momentum going, so his Schubert never seems sluggish. “Unhurried” may be a neutral way of describing the Allegretto of Symphony 2, or Symphony 4’s Andante.

These performances contain many moments of iridescent beauty. Végh also brings to the fore some details that I had never noticed in many years of listening to these works, especially wind passages that have been obscured by larger ensembles, or left behind in a blur by hastier performances by other chamber orchestras. The recordings are detailed and convey a sense of immediacy. They tilt a little to the bass, so you hear timpani and contrabass parts clearly.
