About the album

Robert Schumann’s four symphonies are undoubtedly highlights of the symphonic repertoire and are a true challenge for any orchestra.  The numbering of the symphonies produces a degree of confusion – the Symphony in D minor from 1841 was fundamentally revised by Schumann in 1851 and was then given number 4. The recording on this CD is a reconstruction of the original version and is in fact Schumann’s ‘Second’.

 

Together with the Netherlands Radio Chamber Philharmonic Michael Schonwandt is very convincing in his mix of romantic style, highest expressiveness and really brilliant orchestral colors, the whole being cemented by the knowledge of the historical performance practice. New perspectives for Schumann!
