You can watch and listen to the performances of Nos. 5 to 8, No. 7 being the 'Unfinished', at this website. :) (With thanks to DavidRoss for the link.)

Watching the video of this here No.8(9), absolutely in love. But with how close I keep my already owned Minkowski discs to my player (Berlioz, Haydn, Rameau) I'm not surprised. And nothing can beat a live performance. On the second movement Andante now, so animated and playful yet so romantic, this movement not only represents the best of Schubert, but the best of the genre.

Thanks for the post (who ever first posted it) this is making my week!

He almost breaks that baton during the final minutes of the finale.

Q

Sounds like it would be an excellent set. I only have Harnoncourt's Schubert at the moment and am keen to own another set, maybe this will be one I will invest in at some point in the future. :)

Daniel, I'm gung-ho on the Kertesz/WP for the Schubert symphonies.  Just another recommendation.  :)

If still in print the Bruggen set is great.  I want to pick up another set soon, I was going to go with Marriner but I guess now I can go with Minkowski instead! :)

There's also this Mackerras & OAE 2-fer with 5, 8 & 9, and quite cheap. Excellent performances, too.

Hmmmm. I like Minkowski, but he sounds a bit underpowered in the clips I could find (both audio and video). For exmple:

I thought so, too, lacking a bit of the verve and zest that make his Mozart and Haydn so smashing!

Thanks for this, Karlo. My dad owns this 2-fer, certainly excellent performances! :)

Daniel, my inclination from watching the videos is Harnoncourt and Minkowski will be fairly similar... Harnoncourt's my only set too, so now Ray's post has me very much wanting to buy the Kertesz cycle! And the Minkowski cycle!

W/r/t Minkowski's 8(9), the opening introduction had me rather worried, but the main allegro is simply riveting - perfectly paced, vibrantly played, maybe a tiny bit underpowered but I hope that's due to the recording quality.

Yes, Ray's post has me very much wanting the Kertesz cycle too, it sounds great! And the Minkowski cycle too of course! ;) I really do love Schubert's symphonies. :)

Edit: just listened to some excerpts from the Kertesz on amazon, sounds very good indeed!

I've been blabbing about the Schubert (Kertesz/WP) set for SO long, I'll probably be banned from the site, out of people being sick and tired of me mentioning it.  ;D :D 8)
