Notes & Reviews:

The Gewandhaus Orchestra - under it's Music Director Riccardo Chailly - brings generations of authentic "romantic" style to performances of all four Schumann symphonies. These symphonies, recorded in the wonderful acoustic of the Gewandhaus itself, include the revisions made by the composer Gustav Mahler - a lifelong supporter of Schumann and his symphonic writings. Since Chailly took charge at the Gewandhaus, the orchestra has received consistently excellent reviews for their playing and interpretations of the works of the great Romantic composers. The orchestra was invited for the first time this summer to appear at the BBC Proms in the Royal Albert Hall.
