Schumann: Symphonies Nos 1 – 4 – Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Grzegorz Nowak
Grzegorz Nowak, Principal Associate Conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, conducts all four of Schumann’s symphonies. These masterpieces of the romantic era – full of sumptuous melody and drama – were recorded in the glorious acoustic of Cadogan Hall, and should be in the record collection of anyone who loves richly orchestrated romantic music. These works are crammed full of incident and delight, from the fanfares that start the Spring Symphony (No. 1) to the soaring melodies of the Rhenish (No. 3).
