Schumann: The Complete Symphonies

Four symphonies were enough for Robert Schumann to leave his mark. Without allowing himself to be overawed by Beethoven’s shadow, he succeeded from the outset in coining a highly personal idiom, with an astonishing combination of formal rigour and freedom of inspiration. Pablo Heras-Casado and the Münchner Philharmoniker offer their interpretation of this corpus, more mysterious than it appears, which tells of its composer’s passionate and tormented soul.
