Notes & Reviews:

"Tempos are nicely gauged, the playing is mostly spot-on (violin desks do valiantly in the Second Symphony’s Scherzo) and [the] sound quality is warm, immediate and cleanly defined. The “Rhenish” seems to me the more memorable of the performances, again vigorous and neatly phrased, with plenty of lively interplay between sections and a sweetly yielding violin tone." -Gramophone

Regarded as one of the greatest and most representative composers of the Romantic era, Robert Schumann wrote many remarkable symphonies, all of which are recorded on this special disc. Performing the pieces is the Wiener Philharmoniker under the baton of Riccardo Muti. Generally acknowledged as possessing the finest string section in the world, the Philharmoniker never ceases to amaze.
