Notes & Reviews:

George Schumann, brother of organist and composer Camillo Schumann, first studied with his father and later, at the Leipzig Conservatory, under Carl Reinecke. Although he composed chamber and orchestral works (including two Symphonies), he is best known for his choral works. Schumann conducted a choral society in Danzig from 1890 to 1896 and, after settling in Berlin in 1900, he became the conductor of the Sing-Akademie. It was precisely this group that influenced his writing, while also developing the choir into such a brilliant instrument that he could at the same time develop, refine and elaborate his own choral writing to match their superlative standards. This CD represents some of his crowning achievements.
