After Brahms and Bruckner, Christian Thielemann and the Staatskapelle Dresden, one of the world’s oldest and most prestigious orchestras and, like Schumann, rooted in Saxony, present Robert Schumann’s four symphonies. This cycle, which was recorded live at the Suntory Hall in Tokyo, is a new milestone in Schumann interpretation. Christian Thielemann conducts with verve and explores the music to the finest nuances.
