Schumann: Symphonies 1-4, Sechs Fugen über den Namen BACH, Op. 60 (Fuge No. 6), Symphony in G minor "Zwickau"

Netherlands Radio Chamber Philharmonic
Michael Schønwandt

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’.
