Concert review – Schubert, Schumann, Purcell (arr. Manze) & Mozart / Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra

“The concert was certainly a personal triumph for Manze…Under Manze’s direction it [Schubert Symphony No.3] was all energy and light: the first movement sprightly but still allowing room for genial exchanges, the second deliciously subtle but never self-regarding, the third full of Viennese cosiness but never tasteless, the finale fast but never overdriven. How difficult those ‘buts’ are to achieve, yet how natural Manze and his musicians made everything feel.”
