Symphonies 5 & 6
Dirk Joeres and the Westdeustche Sinfonia give sparkling accounts of Schubert’s 5th and 6th Symphonies. The Sinfonia’s foundation in 1987 was based on the original idea of bringing together leading musicians from ten major orchestras in the region of north-western Germany. Their first CD recording appeared in 1989, in 1990 they toured the USA for the first time and in 1991 on the occasion of receiving the Critics’ Choice Award, Gramophone wrote: ‘superb orchestral playing and expressive, reflective interpretations’.
