While the Tacet label is most noted for its ambitious surround sound capabilities (that’s to say actual surround sound with every channel available to SACD equipment utilised to the full; essentially, the listener is put in the centre of the orchestra), this notion would go for nothing if it were not matched by performances of style and substance that do service to the music. That is very much the case with this latest take on Schubert’s C Major masterpiece, here given an urgency that — while it may not be to every taste — makes for a truly exhilarating listening experience.
