"Schubert is the composer who is closest to my heart. When we talk about great music, we always talk first about Mozart and Bach. But when it comes to the last heartbeats then it is definitely Schubert who is closest to me." Harnoncourt has conducted multiple cycles of Schubert symphonies since the 1980s and also devoted time to the two late masses. No other conductor seems to be interested by the now very rarely performed opera Alfonso und Estrella. Between 2003 and 2006 he accepted the invitation of the Berliner Philharmoniker and conducted the orchestra on this program, from which the present recordings were derived. The vocal cast of opera is truly outstanding in the recordings with Kurt Streit, Dorothea Röschmann and Christian Gerhaher. This second large-scale project from the home of Berliner Philharmoniker Recordings provides a versatile and magnificent portrait of Schubert, supported by the extraordinary musical language of both orchestra and conductor! © AG, Qobuz 2015
