Passable #8 (Unfinished), disappointing #9 (Great)

#8 may be worth downloading. Tintner's tempi & the critical tempo changes are nicely judged & it flows while still revealing the incredible melodic beauty & intense emotion. The ending is satisfying but I prefer no applause (so easy to edit out). Similar comments apply to #9 but orchestral limitations show. Playing can be scrappy, strings sound thin & lack body, strange sounds come from the winds & too often the orchestra's response is lacklustre. They seem to lack the technical ability to realise the conductor's vision. Recording quality is rather ordinary too. eMusic has a superior alternative, the Munich Phil. under G√ľnter Wand, also recorded live. His is a bigger, broader conception of the work than Tintner's with more extreme tempo changes but I find it more satisfying, partly because it is much better played & recorded. A small difference: Tintner observes Schubert's diminuendo on the finale's last bar, Wand does not. Some scholars dispute this diminuendo marked in the score.
