Schubert's Symphony No. 9 in C has long been acknowledged the world over as one of the supreme masterpieces of symphonic music. It owes something to Beethoven, yet differs fundamentally from his conception of the symphony. Beethoven's symphonies are essentially logical, tightly knit, epic ; Schubert's are wayward, loose, and essentially lyrical
The C major is, in many ways, the direct ancestor of the vast canvases of Bruckner and Mahler. It was certainly this symphony, a huge classical mould, filled with a wealth of romantic improvisation, that served Bruckner as a model for what Brahms so unkindly described as his ' symphonic boa-constrictors '.
