Though rare on auditions, this work is frequently performed and recorded by orchestras. On older recordings it may be referred to as the 7th symphony. This numbering inconsistency is due to the large number of Schubert's works left unpublished at his death, which has made putting these compositions in chronological order very difficult. The subtitle, "Great C Major," is almost always included, and makes finding recordings easy.
